    That's Not Current - Kieran Fisher Sep 14, 2016

    This is a brilliant start to the new series. Brothers in Arms comes out swinging with its first issue and it's left my anticipation levels for the next instalment through the roof. I cannot recommend these comics enough, but if you're new to them then I can't think of a better one to start off with. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Jorge Arena Oct 4, 2016

    Samurai: Brothers in Arms #1 rushes into feudal Japan, with you in toe. The writing is well researched, and enjoyable. Characters enjoy just enough depth for a beginning issue without feeling overbearing. The art takes what's imagined by Di Giorgio and gives you structure to be able to move forward in the story, even though some of the panels could have been handled better. Finally, the color is rich, while keeping to the traditions of what is thought to be used for a Japanese-inspired story. Samurai: Brothers in Arms #1 is a good enjoyable story, that will leave you happily expecting issue two. Read Full Review

    this was an excellent start to the next installment of the Samurai saga. . . . . if you at all enjoy a good tale of a wandering swordsman, definitely give it a try! . . . . you won't be disappointed. . . . . . the art feels like it's making nice progress since the very start of the series. . . . . . and it was very beautiful to begin with!!! . . . . . the next issue can't come soon enough!!! . . . . . it makes me want to go back and re-read the earlier installments of the saga just to hold me over.
