    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez May 11, 2019

    Overall, Samurai JackLost Worlds #1is a must-read for anySamurai Jackfan but it may not be impactful for those who have not seen the television animation. The story hinges on a connection between the reader and the real Jack, so that when the realization hits, we feel the turn in the story. While I won't say that this isn't accessible for all readers, it will certainly land better and with more power for those familiar with or fans of the series. Read Full Review

    It's great to Samurai Jack back. I just hope that this might inspire Adult Swim to do a season 6. But in order for this to happen, fans both young and old are going to have to purchase this book! Read Full Review
