    Only two more issues to go -- and then a super-deluxe hardcover (fingers crossed). This series has been one of the standouts of the year, and something I am sure I will read and reread for years to come. Read Full Review

    If you like epic tales or samurai, 47 Ronin is worth your time. Though a lot of set-up occurs in the first few chapters, the ending promises to be rewarding. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Matt Eurice Mar 6, 2013

    If you’ve ever been a fan of old Japanese samurai movies or even just have a bit of interest in them, I would recommend picking this one up. It may be a bit too serious for some comic fans out there and perhaps not enough action, but you won’t hear those complaints coming from my direction. This series is telling a story, a traditional story that is about more than just samurai’s kicking ass; a story that is about Japanese values and heritage. I would say you owe it to yourself to give this one a shot. For god sakes, get a little bit of culture in your lives! Read Full Review

    The 47 Ronin is a fantastic and well researched account for one of Japan's most famous stories. Richardson and Sakai have crafted something truly special. The 47 Ronin hasn't been for everyone, but if you enjoy the storytelling it has been a great ride 4/5 Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 11, 2013

    Three issues in 47 Ronin is still quite a bit of politics and set-up without delivering much action. That said, the story is well told and I'm willing to read anything drawn by Sakai (although I prefer it to center around a rabbit with a samurai sword). Worth a look. Read Full Review
