Samurai Jack #14

In the latest issue Samurai Jack is tested to prove his worth by the forces who initially crafted the magic sword. After its destruction the various entities have returned to judge whether or not the hero is worthy to have the damaged weapon restored and returned to him.

Filled mostly with Samurai Jack being put through the paces in various different ways, "The Quest of the Broken Blade" is fast-moving if a bit montage heavy feeling very much like the middle fluff of an ongoing story arc (which of course it is).

The tests come to a close with the end of the issue (or do they?) with Samurai Jack facing off against the evil that is Aku, but without the help of his magic blade how long can Samurai Jack survive? My guess, the hero will prove his worth even without the sword and thus earn its return allowing his quest to return home and undo the future that is Aku to continue once more. Worth a look.
