5.0 out of 5 stars Some reviews so far, 11 Nov 2013
This review is from: The 47 Ronin: A Graphic Novel (Paperback)
Some reviews for the book include:

"A masterful retelling of one of the greatest stories in Japanese culture. An engrossing, engaging, emotional and unforgettable epic."
- Jonathan Ross, BBC television presenter

"The 47 Ronin is a dignified telling of a dignified story. It's violent when it needs to be, precise and calm when it's called for and never once loses focus. This is a tightly focused, perfectly pitched retelling of the story and a perfect entry point for anyone coming to the story for the first time. The Keanu Reeves version may have all the spectacle, but this version has all the heart."
- Alasdair Stuart, Bleeding

"This is a successful attempt to accurately depict a legendary historical event. Someone as fascinated by Japanese culture as I am will love this graphic novel for that fact, but anyone expecting it to be similar to the upcoming movie where Keanu Reeves literally sword fights with dragons will be seriously disappointed.

The beautiful artwork and sparse text made it a fast read and gave the revenge tale an ethereal feel, and while I would have liked to see the revenge plot fleshed out in greater detail, I appreciate that may not have been possible given how closely this story seems to be taken from historical record."
-Eric, GoodReads

"If you enjoy works like Lone Wolf and Cub, you will probably enjoy this graphic novel as well.
I'd give it four out of five stars." - Angel Rivera, Librarian.
