Samurai Jack #2

Samurai Jack's quest to gather the remaining Threads of Time leads him to a small village ruled by a pair of perfectly synchronized warriors known as Dis and Dat whose twin attack is too much for our hero.

After facing defeat, Jack discovers the source of the twins perfect synchranicity: Threads of Time woven into both of their tunics allowing the pair to act as one. Challenging Dis and Dat to a rematch, Samurai Jack severs the link and quickly dispatches the two ruffians and freeing the local people from constant fear.

Given that Jack has to construct a rope there's probably many more stands to gather, but the characters of Dis and Dat work well both on their own (giving the samurai one of his toughest tests) and continuing the thread (so to speak) of the ongoing story.

Once again the art by Andy Suriano and dialogue from writer Jim Zub capture the feel of the original cartoon while continuing their adventure. Worth a look.
