Legend of the Scarlet Blades
Intended for mature audiences
New edition of the masterpiece by Italian creator Saverio Tenuta. Raido, a young, amnesic Ronin (masterless Samurai) roams the land in a quest to regain his memory. His first stop is "the city that talks to the sky," the ultimate stronghold against the ice invading the "land of the rising sun." There, he meets Meiki, a graceful puppeteer and storyteller. But the unlikely duo soon incur the wrath of the beautiful, yet evil, Queen Ryin and her body-grafting general. Legend of the Scarlet Blades is an exquisitely painted saga, whose universe is inspired by feudal Japanese history and traditions, and full of breathtaking settings populated by a myriad of wondrous mythical beings that stay with the reader long after the last page.
