Di Giorgio And Genet’s ‘Samurai’ Returns With A Very Pretty Miniseries
If you're already up to speed with Jean-François Di Giorgio and Frédéric Genét's Samurai, then you already know that it's one of the most beautiful comics on the stands. Originally published in France as a series of graphic novel albums, the series follows the adventures of a samurai named Takeo who journeys across medieval Japan trying to solve the mysteries of his own past while dealing with an evil enemy in the form of the hilariously named General Akuma.
If you haven't read it, though, there's some goods news. After collecting the first four volumes into a single book last year, Titan Comics is following it up with the English-language release of a new miniseries: Samurai: The Isle With No Name, a monthly series that picks up right where the collected volumes left off. It's set for release in March, but there's a preview below, and seriously: You're going to want to see how pretty this book is. Check it out below!
