Last samurai

Ok, the posts have been pretty comic/manga heavy recently, so I promise something different for tomorrow. For now though, another title I picked up that I highly recommend is Samurai Executioner. It's the series the creators of Lone Wolf and Cub worked on before that mighty title and it's just as good. It's a bit heavier on historical details and definitely not for kids due to graphic content.

Also, if you're a fan of Taiyo Matsumoto (no. 5, Black and White), he's got a new book on the shelves. Blue Spring, released here by Viz, is a collection of wacked out high school stories that follow different characters as they get through life. As with his other work, its very surreal and bizarre, but quite fascinating. If you've never experienced Matsumoto san's work, you should start with no. 5 first, which is both his most nonsensical and most accessible work at the same time. Posted by Hello
