Comments: Sam Safdie and Taiyo are burglars who broke intp a house. This simple break-in intensifies to man on a motorcycle armed with a gun to crooks having an escape plane ready. There is more to this than a simple break-in. Yes, the crooks along with a couple of others are on a treasure hunt.
The six treasure hunters journey to a castle. The residents are Nazi’s and they do seem very nice and polite. They open up their home to the six. You can tell the Nazis are up to something. Klaus Rainer Vogel comes across kind of as a joke but he is not meant to.
The treasure they seek is locked away and there is something creepy and mysterious about it. Something is just not right and the suspense does start to build. The treasure is different than what is expected at least by some of the people assembled at the tunnel. Yes, there is more to it all and you do get a glimpse of what is to come.
The art is nothing that stands out too much so the characters all fit in like background characters nothing about any of them from the way they are drawn stands out. The story though does slowly creep up and grabs your attention and the art near the end offers up a nice surprise that sneaks out at you.
