Titan Comics will be publishing a series previously published by Marvel Comics this September. Written by Jean-François Di Giorgio, with art by Frédéric Genet, the Samurai collected edition tells the story of one Samurai’s quest for answers in a brutal world. Set in feudal Japan, the story follows Takeo, who has finally achieved his dream of becoming a Samurai. While, imperial Japan is in turmoil, General Akuma, one of the Empire’s most powerful men has turned his back on the Emperor, and is planning to betray him. As Takeo finally fees ready to face his demons with his newfound courage, his involvement in the feud will help him discover who he really is.
Sounds like an intense plot to me! I’m not usually into the whole Samurai thing, but after looking at this art preview, I couldn’t help but be impressed. The detail that Genet puts into the illustrations is absolutely breathtaking. If you’re a fan of anime, manga, or general Japanese culture, I would definitely recommend picking up a copy of the Samurai omnibus. It’s set to release September 9, 2015. Until then, take a look at the advance art preview below!
