Users who pulled this comic:


  1. This series looks promising. Picking it up!

  2. The cover looks great, and I like Katana. But I don’t know who Alex Sanchez is, though I do know who Ann Nocenti is, and that doesn’t give me much faith.

  3. Love Katana!

  4. Nocenti books have been really bad… I’ll have to pass

  5. I haven’t read Birds of Prey, but my curiosity is piqued with this character. I’m particularly interested in learning more about her sword and her role in Johns’ upcoming JLA. I Wiki’d Sanchez’s art and it looks solid. Nocenti is the wildcard.

  6. This was an oddly fun comic, i liked the magical realist touch of a ‘hidden street’ in japantown straight outta edo era japan. The writing was a bit stilded but the art was surprisingly good. Shogun’s Assassin with a touch of Fables.

  7. I enjoyed the hell outa this. There’s a poetry to the language of the opening narrative that I find charming. It levels off, but I was engaged from the get-go. Her sword reminds me of Shinobi. It required blood so often that it would kill it’s wielder if it was not satisfied. I’ll check out next month’s issue.

  8. Wow, I was really surprised with this. I liked the art style – I even liked the writing. With Noceni’s mediocrity on GA and terribleness on Catwoman, I assumed the worst, but I gave it a chance, just one chance.

    It kind of felt a little like Kabuki back when that was really good. I like the different feel to this book – I don’t know how long it will hold my attention, but I will be back for the next issue. Maybe Ann Nocenti is capable of writing a good book?

  9. Yea I actually really liked the art and the story seemed ok, in for next issue. Wasn’t like anything else i’m reading.

  10. Kinda average in my opinion. I liked the art though. Kinda different looking. But the story didn’t do much for me. But I will stick around for a while.
