    I've seen a lot of good comic adaptations of various media over the years, but this one is hands-down the best of the bunch. While I'd recommend a DVD or trade paperback for those new to Samurai Jack, this issue's an easy recommendation for anyone who loves a good comic. Whether you gew up on Cartoon Network or not, this one simply can't be missed. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon Aug 22, 2014

    The rest, as they say, is history. As stated earlier, the book stays true to tradition in visual style, dialogue captions and most especially during action sequences. In between those heavy action sequences we get some comic relief from Jack's wizard ally, a welcome relief from what would otherwise be a hack and slash fest. It all comes together quite nicely though, as a simple adventure story, one of an infinitude in the life of the samurai. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Aug 20, 2014

    Samurai Jack kicks its next big story off with a surprising bang. Zub has turned in some impressive stories for this series, but this month's entry has some rather surprising consequences that should make for a great read these next couple of issues. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 19, 2014

    Samurai Jack #11 proves the vibrancy of this title even as the character it follows might have fallen into a rather predictable rut. In other words: this comic comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Aug 20, 2014

    I love this new issue and the flow of the story. Having Seer included in the mix gives the comic a story to follow that is more than defeating some beast. Jack is such a static character that even if another static character is introduced it spices up the overall plot. At the end of the issue, we find out that we are entering a new story arc, which was surprising because usually the gateway issues aren't that thrilling, but Samurai Jack does a good job of keeping your interest in order to build up the new story. So pick up the comic this week because young and old fans will have something to talk about. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 26, 2014

    It will be interesting to watch “The Quest of The Broken Blade” unfold as Samurai Jack will work to restore his sword whose spirit has been lost leaving Jack more vulnerable than ever to Aku's attacks. And how soon will it take Aku to realize Jack is no longer armed with the blade? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Shaun Ketchion Aug 25, 2014

    A great introductory issue for new readers and perhaps a title for younger readers or old fans of the cartoon. Read Full Review
