Samurai Jack #3

Samurai Jack's quest to gather the remaining Threads of Time leads him to a thriving Mediterrean town in the middle of nowhere and the city's friendly champion Gloer who holds a dark secret. At first everything in the town seems normal to the samuarai, and Gloer even proves a great host sparring with the time-displaced warrior. However, upon inquiring about the Threads of Time things take a dark turn.

Once again staying true the the original cartoon, the latest issue by Jim Zub and artist Andy Suriano offers us a tale where all is not what it seems. The truth is only discovered when the town is overrun with minions from Aku who prove too much for Samurai Jack and the Gloer (who seems reluctant to fight).

The truth is the hero, like his town is long dead in the attack the samurai witnessed and only the Threads of Time allow him to stay and remember his home as it was. Freeing the ghost, Samurai Jack continues his journey onward to best Aku and make it home. Worth a look.
