Samurai Jack #19In another single-issue adventure, and one of the goofier adventures of Jack in his current IDW comic series, Samurai Jack is hired by the Canine Archaeologists who need the samurai’s help with the haunted tomb of the world’s first talking dog.

It’s fun to see the comic bring back Sir Drifus Alexander, Sir Angus Mcduffy, and Sir Colin Bartholomew Montgomery Rothchild III and pair the intrepid archaeologists with our hero for a adventure involving an unearthed tomb and a ghost who, like all dogs, just needed a bit of love and attention to stop acting out and driving all of his descendants crazy.

Christine Larsen steps in to do the art for the latest issue that’s more comedy than action (although Jack does have to defend himself against his old friends when they become feral and possessed by the ghost). Larsen offers some fun reaction shots of our hero to the bizarre situation he finds himself dragged into while Jim Zub continues to have fun adding to the legend of Samurai Jack. Worth a look.
