A new release by Central Park Media a few weeks ago was the graphic novel Samurai Legend. It is a stand alone, so don't worry about having to collect more if you enjoy it, this is a one time deal, the entire story in one thick book. If you're looking for the history of the samurai known as Jubei, this book will give you a thorough and in depth look into his past, and hopefully the most truthful of tales you will hear.
Samurai Legend is not for the weak at heart though, as it is especially gory at times. If two hanging heads don't frighten you, then you should be able to tolerate the gory nature of the book. War is not pretty, and this graphic novel shows the dirtiest side to it, the underground side.
For 15 dollars suggested retail price, it may seem a little pricy in comparison to the hoards of 10 dollar Tokyo Pop graphic novels that have been getting released, but it is well worth the extra 5 dollars. The quality of the cover far surpasses anything you will see in Tokyo Pop's novels, and should definitly outlast them in durability. Also, as is in Tokyo Pop, Central Park Media has been nice enough to leave it in the original right to left format for all of you avid fans of keeping it accurate.
