A pretty strong start for Image Comics’ 6-issue mini-series that depicts a tale of betrayal, corruption and secrets that takes place in the Japanese feudal period. The first issue is filled with bloody and graphic imagery that gives its themes a lot of narrative impact.
It was gutsy for Image Comics to price the first issue at a mere One dollar with such stunning artwork to grab new readers; for me, it worked since I am now in for the long haul.

Beware The Man Obsessed With Law, Who Knows No Space Between Law and Honor....

In an era when lineage defined you, three teenagers must make their way through the world hiding their identities in order to find their destinies.
