'Samurai Jack' Is Returning To Adult Swim In 2016
Good news for people who love time-displaced samurai and stylish techno-fantasy dystopias but hate all-powerful demonic overlords: Samurai Jack is making its way back to television next year, and creator Genndy Tartakovsky is coming with it. The new series will continue the original run, which aired for 52 episodes between 2001 and 2004 and introduced the world to a warrior nicknamed "Jack" who was tossed through time into a future where his arch-nemesis, the demon Aku, had taken over the world. The show quickly gained a fan following for its moody, stylish storytelling and episodic adventure through a variety of settings, where dialogue could be kept to a minimum to keep the emphasis on its stunning visuals.
IDW's 'Samurai Jack' Comic Is A Time-Spanning Epic
Like everyone else who had eyes, I was a big fan of Samurai Jack when it first showed up on TV. I loved that show, and the visual style and breathtaking animation that took the risk of sparse dialogue and radical shifts in tone were mind-blowing, and in a lot of ways paved the way for a lot of shows that followed. But while I loved the show while it was on, I wasn't so much of a fan that I was really excited about the announcement that it was going to be revived as a comic from IDW. Don't get me wrong, I'm as big a fan of Jim Zub and Andy Suriano as you're likely to find, but I wasn't quite sure how a show that had relied so much on striking, fluid motion for its visual design would make the transition to the relatively static world of comics. As it turns out, it took to it beautifully, and if you sit down and read the first fifteen issues of the ongoing series, you'll see how well they come together as one vast, epic story that takes Jack in every possible direction -- just like the show.
