Overview

A dishonored, masterless 13th Century samurai — a ronin — is reborn into the corrupt and ncomputerized New York City of the 21st Century with one last chance for redemption. It is here, on this bleak and decaying battleground, that he will at last come face to face with the reincarnation of his master's killer — the ancient demon Agat — settle ancient debts, and fight for the soul of a dying civilization.

A powerful tale of two sworn enemies and the final battle in their centuries-old war, Ronin is acclaimed writer/artist Frank Miller's breakthrough graphic novel that paved the way for the award-winning Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone
… beautiful, ambitious and complex …Miller has developed a vision of urban expressionism that at its peak has the kenetic and dramatic impact of the best film noir …He has accomplished for superhero comics what David Goodis, Jim Thompson, and Raymond Chandler had accomplished for the pulp crime novel …
Washington Post
Frank Miller has reworked the comic book cliche … His tone is somber yet superheated, almost operatic. Perhaps the nearest stylistic equivalent is the early work of Martin Scorsese: Mean Streets or Taxi Driver … There's never been storytelling quite like this. It took someone who views comics as an art to create it.

Still frames of meaningful movements and a solid plot line as per usual. Gorgeous work-the foundation work for Elektra Lives.
