Sword's Edge!


This is a 1973 independent project I knew nothing about until I was researching Sanho Kim for the recent Yang Reports. These images rescued from an ebay listing for the book look utterly fascinating. Apparently this seems to be the first part of an epic tale, but it is the only chapter I've found any evidence of. This is first-rate Sanho Kim, in a somewhat more adult mode. Here's a review of the book. Beautiful, the kind of thing more than worthy of a reprint by someone somewhere. Here the Grand Comic Book Database gives more details about the book and confirms there was only this one volume.

UPDATE: I just ordered one of these. Hopefully it will show up in the next few weeks and I can offer up a fuller review.

  1. I had this one but had forgotten all about it. Can't remember why I don't have it anymore but I remember it as being very well done. Always enjoyed the artist's very non-American style.

  2. While I'm somewhat cool to some "manga", I've always liked Sanho Kim's take. He brings a fragile quality to his work that I find missing in much of the other stuff of that type.

    His Ghost Manor covers are fascinating.
