    Koike and Kojima have created a beautiful work of art that captivates the intrigue of readers with exquisite pen-work reminiscent of moku hanga (traditional Japanese woodblock printing) and a minimalist, but enthralling and well researched story of rōnin in feudal Japan. If you’re into comics that show rather than tell, then this is the read for you!
