Samurai Jack #16As a new arc begins rumors of a man with a control over time reach the ears of Samurai Jack who, along with thousands, flock to hear just what the self-professed Master of Time has to say. When the public audience does little more than pique the samurai’s interest he attempts a private audience with the man by sneaking into the heavily-guarded compound. Sadly, our hero isn’t as good a sneak as he is a warrior and ends up dumped (literally) out of the fortress.

It’s not often our hero needs help but admitting to a limitation, and fueled by the promise of what the Master of Time is offering (although from a couple of hints I’m expecting he isn’t all he’s cracked up to be), the samurai does seek our a partner to break back into the fortress and get the audience he so desperately desires. Just how the partnership will work with is yet to be seen.

Letting Aku step into the shadows for an issue or two allows for a different kind of story and the tease of an unlikely team-up of the samurai and the thief certainly sells me on the new arc. Worth a look.
