Samurai Jack #11
IDW (August, 2014)“Quest Of The Broke Blade” WRITER: Jim Zub ARTIST: Andy Surtano COLORIST: Josh Burcham LETTERER: Shawn Lee EDITOR: Carlos Guzman “SAMURAI JACK” CREATOR: Genndy Tartakovsky
A seer knows a way to use Jack’s sword to send him back to his own time, but something goes wrong.
What they got right: We get to see some cool fights as there is more to Jack than his sword. He just needs it’s power to hack up Aku when he faces him. Zub may be planning to add a bit more to the story of the sword forged by gods to defeat Aku.
What they got wrong: It’s kind of short, which I guess is normal for something with this much action, but I went through it pretty quick. It just made the end of breakfast.
Recommendation: It may feel short while reading but with writer and artist coming together to form a great story that I can’t pick one moment for Best Scene (it’s all too good), it’s still worth the price paid. This will also be a most interesting arc for fans. Pick this one up.
