526 CE-China is ruled by the Great Ming Empire. Though the empire flourishes, the winds of the new Emperor's political purge are sweeping over the land, and turmoil is brewing. With the decimation of her comrades, Shao Jun has become China's last Assassin.
A gripping, original manga adaptation of Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China that adds details and scenes not seen in the original game!

    Assassin's Creed: Blad of Shao Jun Volume 1is simultaneously a good adaptation of an under-appreciated video game and a good manga in its own right. The story expands upon the game in engaging ways and helps impart the main character's stakes more clearly, even if she is not as well-expressed as I could hope for. This is only the beginning of Shao's story though and there is a lot of evidence already that over time, it will only continue to be more fulfilling to read. Read Full Review
