Bastard Samurai #1

BASTARD SAMURAI #1 – [of 3] (Mike Oeming & Miles Gunter/Kelsey Shannon/Mike Oeming) Set in present-day Manhattan, this story focuses on Jiro, a killer at the top of his class at the Kozu sword school. The underground training camp in midtown takes in orphans and twists them into Bushido warriors. The Yakuza stage death matches across the city rooftops where Japanese businessmen gamble heavily on the always-fatal outcome. The killing life is all he has ever known, but a rendezvous with fate is about to change all that. With graduation in sight, Jiro experiences a vision while meditating that sets a sequence of events in motion that will take him beyond his own limits and change him forever. Includes a five-page backup drawn by Oeming.
