    A fairly good installment in the franchise, this one! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 17, 2014

    Samurai Jack #9 may not be the cream of the crop when it comes to narrative depth, but it is an outing that does exactly what it sets out to do. It continues the legacy of its aged predecessor without hampering the forward momentum of the brand new stories this volume seeks to tell. In other words even with the downplayed text this issue comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 28, 2014

    Several of the best Samurai Jack episodes centered around the odd creatures and personalities Jack met in the future be they crazy Scotsmen, forest creatures who knew how to jump good, trapped Norse warriors, or even Aku in an attractive disguise. The character certainly lends himself to comics heavy on action and light on dialogue but the series needs to remember to allow Jack to interact with others from time to time as well. Worth a look.

    But between the lack of dialogue and pretty straightforward conflict, this issue is a pretty spartan affair. Expect to be finished within a couple minutes. Great art or not, that's a hard pill to swallow for a $3.99 comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Jun 18, 2014

    Samurai Jack offers some great visual narratives for the reader, but I still am hoping some more dialogue can come along with it. The past two months' stories have had the same conclusion, so offering some different goals or some insight into Jack's plan would help elevate the comic. It could reach a wider audience and keep the readers for longer times. Read Full Review
