Samurai Jack #5

“Uh, samurai, I’m over here.”

Samurai Jack #5

IDW Publishing (February, 2014)

“Threads Of Time” finale
WRITER: Jim Zub
ARTIST: Andy Suriano
COLORIST: Josh Burcham
LETTERER: Shawn Lee
EDITOR: Carlos Guzman
“SAMURAI JACK” CREATOR: Genndy Tartakovsky

After more adventures there is only one thread left, and Aku is using it as floss. Jack fights Aku but Jack may have to choose which sacrifice to make.

What they got right: It was a lucky shot on Aku’s part so I’ll accept it. Besides, we have a reset button to press to keep the series going. It was a short fight but within the limits of comics versus cartoon it works out well. Plus we finally get a Jack/Aku fight which is nice to see.

What they got wrong: Zub teases other adventures and I wanted to see some of them. Who doesn’t want to see Jack take on an evil Barbershop Quartet or an animated ragdoll?

Recommendation: Still a comic I can highly recommend for fans of fun action stories as well as the TV series.

Don't worry folks. It's a comic so he'll get better.
