Michael Avon Oeming comic
Bastard Samurai takes place in present-day Manhattan and focuses on Jiro, a killer at the top of his class at the Kozu sword school. The underground training camp in midtown takes in orphans and twists them into Bushido warriors. The Yakuza stage death matches across the city rooftops where Japanese businessmen gamble heavily on the always-fatal outcome. The story is produced and overseen by Powers co-creator Michael Avon Oeming, who introduces newcomers Miles Gunter (Vertigo's Weird War Tales) and animator Kelsey Shannon, who worked on Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. Each issue includes a five-page backup drawn fully by Oeming. This Issue: Jiro's status allows him the best that Manhattan offers, but he is forever on the tight leash of his superiors: always followed, always watched. The killing life is all he has ever known, but a rendezvous with fate is about to change all that. With graduation in sight, Jiro experiences a vision while meditating that sets a sequence of events in motion that will take him beyond his own limits- and change him forever.
Sometimes science fiction is all in your head... and sometimes it's all in your face. Agent Six has been sent here to retrieve defectors from Command, but everything is not as it seems... because Six wasn't sent from another country, he was sent from another plane of existence. And not only have the defectors gone rogue, they've gone crazy. They've turned their backs on their sterile, logical world to live in the grim and gritty emotional world of earth--but can they handle it? What happens when an alien mind is exposed to the logic and emotion of "humanity" through dreams? Agent Six is about to find out as he takes a trip through the human psyche in an effort to recover rogue agents sent to Earth to study us. As Six's mission continues and he struggles with his newfound freedom, the greater his chances are to become infected... by humanity. Extras include a sketchbook section by OEMING and pin-ups by MATT WAGNER, DAVID MACK, ANDY LEE, KLAUS JANSON and others!
