About this deal

Paths cross, swords clash, and all the pieces begin to fall into place for a ferocious final battle in this penultimate omnibus volume of Hiroaki Samura's spellbinding masterpiece.

Intense and audacious, Blade takes period samurai action and deftly combines it with a modernist street idiom to create a style and mood like no other work of graphic fiction. Purists also quibble about the production process of re-pasting the panels page by page to create the front to back reading experience, as in the years since Blade of the Immortal first appeared in English we’ve become used to reading manga from back to front as the Japanese do.
