Satsuma Gishiden by Hitomi Hirayama
Book DescriptionThis is the Edo-era samurai guts. Controversial, tough, angry, highly skilled and lost in a time of peace, the characters of "Satsuma Gishiden" tell a quasi-historical tale of social caste and brutal reprisal. Readers with a taste for Kazuo Koike's gritty "Lone Wolf & Cub" will go nuts for master gekiga artist Hiroshi Hirata's tome of samurai struggle. Hirata's art and calligraphy leap off the page during scenes of action, only to unfold upon a full bleed that looks like a fine plate print. It's art at is most expressive, accentuating the classic stoic samurai characters you've come to know, only with a little more true society thrown in to help the reader understand what it was really like to be a warrior without a war.
