Blade of the Immortal Deluxe Volume 1 (Hardcover)
This is a story of vengeance. A young girl from a noble samurai family hires a down and out ronin to help her get revenge against the men who murdered her entire family in front of her. This outcast from polite samurai society has a secret that makes him seemingly invincible as he follows her on her path of blood. This story is a beautifully drawn look at human mortality and the harsh evils of revenge.— From Staff Favorites
A cursed, seemingly immortal warrior aids a young girl in her quest for revenge, as the students of a brutal new sword school tear a bloody path across Japan. Hiroaki Samura's massive manga series spawned two anime adaptations, a spinoff novel, an art book, and a live-action film! Samura's storytelling tour-de-force also won Japan's Media Arts Award, several British Eagle Awards, and an Eisner Award, among other international accolades. Intense and audacious, Blade takes period samurai action and deftly combines it with a modernist street idiom to create a style and mood like no other work of graphic fiction.
