Samurai Jack #12

Sensing that the one object in all the world which he fears in no longer an obstacle, Aku celebrates by putting a bounty on Samurai Jack's head when the samurai is at his most vulnerable. With the sword broken, and fighting his way through mercenaries and bounty hunters, Samurai Jack returns home to where he first received the sword but finds only half-remembered memories and no hope no answers to his current predicament.

"The Quest of the Broken Blade" continues to be one of the most intriguing arcs of the current IDW run. Even without his sword the samurai proves he is capable of taking care of himself, but how long before Aku himself takes advantage of the opening and chooses to deal with Samurai Jack one-on-one?

And where does Samurai Jack, and those who look to him to be a champion of hope, look to find his own? From the looks of things the Quest has only just begun. Worth a look.
