The all-star team of writer Ron Marz and artist Luke Ross returns for a sequel to last year's acclaimed series! The samurai Shiro followed his kidnapped love, Yoshiko, across Asia and Europe, from feudal Japan to Paris and the mirrored halls of Versailles. Reunited only briefly, the lovers were wrenched apart once again by the treachery of a Spanish nobleman determined to possess Yoshiko. Now the Spaniard has fled, with Yoshiko his prisoner, and Shiro pursues, swearing vengeance. Their journey will take them from Spain, to the azure waters of the Mediterranean, and finally to the sands of fabled Egypt. Swashbuckling historical epics have never looked so good, thanks to the exquisite artwork of Luke Ross (Jonah Hex). Praise for the first Samurai: Heaven and Earth series: 'The magnificence of Samurai: Heaven and Earth results from the combination of a charismatically eanest protagonist, the verisimilitude of the story's early eighteenth century settings, and the sheer grandeur of Luke Ross's artwork.' - ' Samurai features some of the best artwork I have ever seen in a comic. Ron Marz delivers a linear plot that manages to be entertaining because of its setting and style.' Samurai: Heaven & Earth™ © 2006 Ron Marz and Luke Ross.
