Frank Miller's Ronin Rising Manga Edition

Frank Miller

The manga edition of the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning classic Ronin by Frank Miller

A cursed Ronin. Psychological manipulation by a sentient AI. A security commander turned savior. And a postapocalyptic biotech war in the demon-teeming pits of a twenty-first century New York inadvertently started by the once benevolent Aquarius Corporation. Eisner Hall of Famer Frank Miller's Ronin is cited as the inspiration for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Samurai Jack. Now--40 years later--Miller, with the team Philip Tan and Daniel Henriques, returns to the world of Ronin, continuing his story for a new generation in Frank Miller's Ronin Rising.

With Philip Tan and Daniel Henriques providing pencils and inks for chapters 1, 2, 3, and 5 of the manga, and the masterful Frank Miller himself drawing chapters 4 and 6, Frank Miller's Ronin Rising is a visual feast, with skillfully executed battle sequences that seem to jump off the page. Miller and his team continue the story of Ronin deftly and intentionally, drawing the reader into his postapocalyptic world as completely as he did in the original series run, published in 1983-84 by DC Comics, which is widely considered to be one of his most influential original works.

This affordable manga edition pays homage to Frank Miller's inspirations for the original Ronin, appealing to Frank Miller fans and manga readers alike.
