    Few finales exist that attempt to tie up stories while leaving the door open for future tales and succeed. Luckily for readers, the Samurai Jack creative team joins the small pantheon of these great endings. They succeed in delivering a finale that both celebrates all the stories that have come before and continues developing the titular character, keeping the door open for future tales while presenting a satisfying endpoint to Jack's epic adventure. But either way, the final words of Mako the Scribe ring true about Samurai Jack: "The Legend Will Never Die." Read Full Review

While still open-ended, this issue celebrates the life and legacy of the hero and delivers an excellent cap to an excellent comic. Read Full Review

    Comics based on cartoons can be a real crapshoot, but Jim Zub and company delivered a strong monthly series that added rather than detracted from the franchise. Even if I'm not the biggest fan of Andy Suriano's rough art on display, this issue is a must-read for fans of Samurai Jack. Read Full Review
