Samurai Jack #11

Beginning a new arc, Samurai Jack #11 leads Samurai Jack to Soule the Seer who believes the samurai's enchanted blade holds the key to finally sending the time-displaced warrior home. When Soule's incantations go wrong, however, Jack is left without his trustworthy blade and the one weapon in all of creation which Aku fears.

In the comic's rotating stable of artists, Andy Suriano provides some of the series best panels with his work in Samurai Jack #11. I particularly enjoyed the Luke and Yoda style trekking as Jack carries Soule on his back to what his mistakenly believes is magical spot which will lead him home.

It will be interesting to watch "The Quest of The Broken Blade" unfold as Samurai Jack will work to restore his sword whose spirit has been lost leaving Jack more vulnerable than ever to Aku's attacks. And how soon will it take Aku to realize Jack is no longer armed with the blade? Worth a look.
