The Concept: 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 used by the Yakuza in death matches staged across the city rooftops where Japanese businessmen gamble heavily on the always-fatal outcome. The Bastard Samurai trade collects the sold out critically acclaimed miniseries with a special bonus section packed full of kick@$$ $#%!. For starters we've thrown in the killer five page preview from Powers #17 that started it all as well as a pinup gallery featuring visionary masters like Brian Steelfreeze, David Mack, Dave Johnson, Rick "son of Ikegami" Mays, Andy Lee and other amazing badasses. The trade also features an extensive look behind the scenes into the creative process of Oeming, Gunter and Shannon. You'll see how things go from concept to execution as well as deleted material deemed too weird by Mike. We at Bastard Samurai love well executed DVD extras as much as the next gaijin, so we're approaching the trade with this goal in mind. If you missed the issues the first time around then this is your chance to get the full monty. Don't delay - preorder today.
