Manga writer Hideyuki Furuhashi and illustrator Betten Court delivers My Hero Academia: Vigilante Volume 11. It serves as a prequel and spin-off to mangaka Kohei Horikoshi’s brilliant superhero MHA manga. Shueisha publishes it in Japan while Viz Media releases it in the United States.
As the Crawler is trying to help his brainwashed friend Pop-Step and set her free, the number 2 hero Endeavor arrives. The flame hero has no interest in taking prisoners, causing some problems with the rescue mission. Things really heat up when the villainous Number 6 reveals himself, causing the hero known as Midnight to get involved. With all of these factors in play, the Crawler and his allies have to come together or risk getting burned.
Just when you think things cannot get any more intense, this manga series raised the stakes. The artwork is fantastic and it truly delivers a dynamic illustration of those stakes. Endeavor is a pro-hero who cannot stand vigilantes, but the Crawler must save his friend, no matter the cost. You see this play out right before your eyes with the amazing artwork.
The same can be said for the writing. You are hooked as you watch the Crawler plead for the life of his friend as she serves Number 6. What’s more, you see the Crawler conflicted over battling not only a villain but also other heroes who think he is doing the wrong thing by not getting a license. I am sad this series is ending as it has been an excellent example of superhero comics.
