Madam Samurai vol 2 cover

Madam Samurai is a two-volume graphic novel featuring a mute girl who is forced to become a samurai warrior in a tale of revenge and retribution. The young girl's story begins in Satsuma-era Japan and ends in the smog-ridden alleys of Victorian London. The two cultures clash in this original story which features a shocking twist to the Jack the Ripper mythos. From the pen of the award-winning screenwriter GARY YOUNG (Harry Brown, Sir Michael Caine), story concept by Gael McClaughlin. Published by Shane Chebsey, Scar Comics.
