Samurai Jack in the early 2000’s was a pinnacle of the Cartoon Network prime-time slots. A fun show about a Samurai trained by the best warriors literacy and history could create – from Robin Hood to Genghis Khan – trying to rid the world of the demon Aku. A pretty standard premise until the twist was revealed in which Jack was sent to the future to destroy Aku’s new empire that governed the world, and to prevent any attacks Aku could throw back in time. Samurai Jack #11 helps re-introduce this concept in the first page and makes it instantly accessible to any reader, be they old fans of the show or younger/new readers.
