The first issue of Samurai: Legend #1 hit stores yesterday, and I missed the e-mail from Marvel with the preview until just now.  So, while it may be late, for those looking for ancient Samurai tales, Samurai: Legend #1 from the Marvel/Soleil partnership should scratch that itch.

Writer Jean-Francois Di Giorgio and artist Frédéric Genêt tap into the rich mythology of the noble Samurai, creating a nuanced look at the fabled Japanese warriors, in the hit series that took Europe by storm! A samurai seeks to discover the answers to his mysterious past, as one of Japan’s most important figures seeks to betray the Emperor—but just how are both connected to the 13th prophet? And what does it mean for the future of Japan?
