Bambi and her Pink Gun v.1 by Atsushi Kaneko – 200 pages
“Me Bambi,” she announces herself, shortly before she plugs you between the eyes. Pink-haired, pink pistol-toting Bambi only allows natural food into her beautiful pure body, loves Mr. Pei the Bear on TV, and cracks herself up reading Kant. Having kidnapped a young boy she dubs Pampi from the Gabba King, a sadistic Fat Elvis-like pop singer, she’s on the run through an industrial landscape choked with fast food joints with a price of $5 million yen on her head, trying to deliver Pampi to the “old men”. What follows is one pulpy Tarantino-worthy bloodbucket-bloated shootout after another, as Bambi leaves a trail of dead assassins in her wake, from gangsters to grandmas. Events come to a climax when the arms dealer’s hideout where she's laying low is blown to bits, and Pampi ends up in the hands of a cowboy gang intent on claiming the bounty. Can Bambi get Pampi back? This manga is drawn in a more Western comic style, with a brush, and printed in no less than pink ink.
