Courtesy of the good folks over at Dark Horse, we have some preview pages for Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo) and Mike Richardson‘s (Cut, Caravan) comic adaptation of the greatest revenge story ever told—47 Ronin.
The legend of the 47 Ronin began in the 18th century as a group of samurai who were set on a course of revenge after their daimyo, Asano Naganori was forced to commit ritual suicide after attacking a man knows as Kira Yoshinaka. The tale has been popularized in Japanese culture as a shining example of loyalty, sacrifice, and honor.
With Sakai behind the helm, the comic will unquestionably be grounded in the classic realistic style that has made the comic creator’s work legendary. Check out the preview pages below and get ready for some cold entrees. You know, because revenge is best served… ah, never mind.
