"In each of us, there is another whom we do not know." The shadow is the dark side of the subconscious, where this 'other' resides. It's where we've imprisoned our demons -- where they amass inconceivable power. Unearthing and mending with the shadow is a delicate, gradual process. But sometimes all it takes is one brutally jarring experience, coupled with a reckless dose of hard drugs and booze, to plunge you straight towards the darkest pits of your psyche. THIS ISSUE: "Evil Ways" -- With Fukihara hostage, Kenichi and Tetsuo sabotage the yakuza boss' drug deal with a shady Korean mob, inciting a bloody brawl to set off an impending gang war. Renji's plan to rattle the "Barracuda's" operation and strangle his resources, is falling into place. But the "Barracuda" not only knows of his plan, he's looking forward to it. Sold out by someone close to them, the group suddenly find themselves on the run from Hikki -- a fiery female assassin whose sheer beauty is rivaled only by her skill with a katana.
