There are so many perfect scenes – I love the page where a gravely injured Tametomo asks Shoichi to tie a sword to his hand so he can continue fighting. Or Shoichi’s inspirational speech when things are at their darkest. It’s brilliant work.
I’ve been a big fan of Kickstart’s output so far, but Divine Wind is on a whole different level. It’s one of the best comics I’ve read all year – it’s amazing.
As always, if you can’t get to a comic store, all of Kickstart’s books are available on the Comixology app. Also, with their most recent releases, they’ve gone to a regular comic size, instead of the smaller-digest size. (Without a price increase, I might add.) The new format does Divine Wind a big favor, giving the art more room to breathe. You should check it out.
