I saw the first three (all three?) volumes of Oldboy in Chapters today (Canada's B&N) and picked them up on a whim. I burned through the first volume (9 chapters) and I was shocked as to how interested I was. I was sucked in within the first ten pages and I didn't stop until I finished. I'll read all three for sure, and make some spoilerific post later, but I am interested to see how this pans out.
The first volume was super duper slow, but I was grabbed by the story and really quite interested in the main character. The art is really slick and the backgrounds are very detailed... I really hope the pace picks up though, I don't know how much talking I can handle in three volumes, no matter how well done it is.
Anyone else read(ing) it?
