Keyman - The Hand of Judgement  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Keyman is the resident hero of Lockville City, a place inhabited by both humans and animal people. In the years since his debut as a hero, crime has decreased significantly, which does not look all that great for the local police force. But one day, after he catches yet another group of criminals, Keyman is mysteriously murdered. Detective Alex and his police force are investigating the murder, and one of their major clues is the words "Dr. Necro," which were carved onto Keyman's body after his death. Their case gets even stranger when Alex unexpectedly meets "Dr. Necro," who appears to be a young girl, in a bar. What monster could be behind the murder of Keyman, and what does the childlike Dr. Necro have to do with it all?

Nonstop action with some decent humor at times. I love the MC, Alex, mainly because he's a T-Rex,but also because he's one badass guy. Story is interesting and intense to say the least. Gory and a bit grotesque but definitely a good read. Originally I thought this was going to be a superman ripoff story until Alex came on the scene. The art is one that gives an older impression which is perfect for this story. 47 ch in and addicted but unfortunately I can see that an end is near. Hope it lasts for a while longer while still being as epic as it has been till now.

Great art, cool plot, and let's not mention those nice animal characters! Man it just reminds me of like 80s cartoon and the art style feels like it too. Overall, it's a very solid manga. Cant wait to see more!

The setting has a well developed feel to it that you seldom get from only a few chapters. The story is a mix of cop show and superhero comic. Its balance of detective work, daily life and quick paced bloody action is spot on. The art is a bit rough in an almost sketch-like quality but the variety of characters due to the mix of well drawn humans and detailed monsters really stands out. This is a story worth following. That and how many other places will you get to see a dinosaur detective kicking ass anywhere?
