Comic of the Week (3/2/11) – 5 Ronin #1

By Vince

5 Ronin is a miniseries where five of Marvel’s most dangerous heroes (Wolverine, Hulk, Punisher, Psylocke and Deadpool) have been re-imagined as part of an epic samurai story. The first issue focuses on Wolverine, who now wanders the countryside as a ronin, a masterless samurai. What follows is a bloody tale of honor and revenge. Mind you, this is not Weapon X Wolverine transplanted 400 years in the past, instead it is a familiar character we all know, without the crazy backstory and powers. The art is very stylish, fitting for the setting, with a great use of color. Fans of the old samurai films will definitely want to check this out.
