    It reminded me watching old Samurai movies as a kid. Stories of a lone warrior bent on conquering an injustice. Brothers in Arms has a great storyline that's mixed with moments of betrayal, love, espionage, and of course sword fighting. Read Full Review

    this is very much one of my ALL-TIME favorite comics right now!!!
    it has so much going for it!!!
    the lead character Takeo is such a bad-ass swordsman! every time he goes into battle is a treat!
    so many developments are finally unfolding, and questions that have been brought up since the very first volumes are getting answered.
    i'm very much looking forward to going back and re-reading this series from the 'Heart of the Prophet' story arc.

    aside from the excellent action and beautiful art, i really enjoy the portrayal of the characters.
    some of the character's motives at first glance seem villainous, though due to circumstances have not too many other choices. seeing how they handle these decisions is what makes the story so compelling.
    and then there are the characters that are just rotten to the core, that you are happy to see them get a samurai sword shoved up their ass sideways!!!

    there is one character that has been in peril for several issues now, that we are left with another cliff hanger as to her fate.
    there have been a few glimmers of hope that she'll be alright, but as of right now things aren't looking too good.
    it's a shame because too! because i felt she had some real potential for development, and it feels like she's been reduced to a mere damsel in distress.
    sure it adds tension and suspense to the story, but i had much higher hopes for her.
