In GANGSTA: CURSED., killing is all Spas has ever known, and he does it without doubt or remorse.

Until the day when he’s forced to confront the horrifying truth that the real monster might be…him.

“GANGSTA. is a successful crime thriller and one of the most popular recent titles from the VIZ Signature catalog,” says Leyla Aker, Senior Vice President, Publishing. “The gritty drama and suspense mixed with non-stop action that made the original series such a hit will captivate readers again with the launch of GANGSTA: CURSED. We invite fans to cap off the year with this explosive new release.”
