47 Ronin Comic (Part 2)

Among the best-known tales in Japanese history, the legend of the 47 Ronin and their epic mission to avenge their disgraced master epitomizes the samurai code of honor. This is the second installment in the Richardson/Sakai collaboration.
Lord Asano is goaded into an assault by a corrupt court official in the Shogun’s palace, and then forced to commit seppuku! Learning that Asano was sentenced without a proper investigation, his retainers set in motion a plan to enact revenge on the official whose insults proved too much for Asano to bear.
