So yes, this happened to me last Friday. I was in the midst of a pretty crappy night so I decided to go and buy some comics. I’ve been reading “Vagabond” by Takehiko Inoue which is a really amazing manga. It’s a retelling of the story of Miyamoto Musashi the famous samurai who wrote “The Book of the Five Rings” and is the character for the Samurai Trilogy starring Toshiro Mifune. The manga is gorgeously illustrated and the story is very good, but definitely not for the faint of heart because it’s pretty violent. In fact, the latest issues are being shrink wrapped along with other graphic mangas like “Samurai Executioner” which is also very good.

I had gone to the comic book store a couple times in the past few weeks hoping to get issue 19 because it had been a while, but it was never there. Then I go on Friday and find them loaded to the gills with issue 20!!! Not one copy of 19 was available so of course I couldn’t just get 20. Going to try again this week.
