English Blurb Edit

Artist Shinta Fujimoto brings Ryohgo Narita's high-proof tale of Prohibition-era mayhem--a gonzo epic of gangsters, immortals, and straight-up thieves--to manga! When the elixir of immortality hits 1930 New York City, not even an undying amoral mastermind can control the chaos that follows. [1]

Synopsis Edit

New York, 1927.

In a corrupt city where crime rules the streets, Firo Prochainezo is Camorra, an Italian criminal syndicate distinct from the mafia. A member of the relatively small Martillo family, Firo's nevertheless got big ambitions and is determined to make his mark. But while the Martillos may not be the biggest bad guys on the block, they've got some distinct advantages working in their favor. Does Firo have what it takes to become a made man?

Let the crazy ruckus begin!

Chapters Edit

Bonus Material Edit

Three pages of bonus content are included at the end of the volume:

  • The first two pages of bonus content feature dialogue that was cut from a conversation in Chapter Two (page 62, panel 3; Yen Press edition) due to page limitations. A single panel of special thanks to the volume's staff and readers immediately succeeds the scene.
  • The single-page bonus content features a mock-newspaper segment called "Carol's Notes," outlined on a pretend _Baccano! Times_ newspaper as displayed on a spiral flipbook. The headline of the day concerns an "Unidentified Flying Creature" that was spotted leaping over rooftops during the Feast of San Gennaro, as seen in Carol's photograph. Accompanying the photo are Carol's notes, in which she wonders if the figure was human or 'some other life-form.'
    • A chibified version of Carol is drawn clutching her pencil and notebook in the foreground, her expression a mixture of alarm and fear.
