Toshiro Ono has spent his life making the best swords that have ever been forged and selling them to the highest bidder. But when his family is killed by a blade of his own making… Toshiro will do whatever it takes to make sure none of his swords ever kill again. Andrew Cosby, creator of EUREKA, and Michael Alan Nelson, creator of HEXED, brings feudal Samurai Japan to life like no other comic has done before.

    This looks really good. I really like that the sneak peek is almost half of the book.

    The concept of the book sold me on giving it a try so I’m glad to see the interior is looking good to boot.
