Color can be great at times (and I also like it about manhwa), but the peak of drawing skill is when you can convey color by BW (+tones) drawing.
It seems to be a common trend (at least between ppl who don't know manga) that BW art can't be truly good.
Damn that was emotional. Wouldn't be surprised if Baam follows Teddy, if he considers him a friend then there's no way he'll just let him walk into what could be a dangerous trap.
For something I do like: I think the attack effects are generally pretty cool, even if it is not always obvious what is going on when a page is covered in them.

On a random but somewhat related note: I hate the use of the word sobriquet. Whoever translated it as that needs to beaten severely. If the author specifically used that word over the 3-4 other synonyms that do not sound godawful, then he needs to be beaten as well.

Personally, I like the art style, to me its good to find a style which I can cope with without wanting to stop reading after a few chapters.. the fact that we have all read so far in to it is testiment that we enjoy what we are getting (critique aside)
So on to the chapter... A great insight in to one of the characters past, it wasnt original no, but it was explained in a way which made me look past the fact it wasnt. I actually really liked how the action scenes were done, they give a good impression of power and a feeling you are close to the action (I know this may not be everyones opinion but each to their own!)
Mangapirate is out
