Preview Rashomon, The Samurai Mystery By Victor Santos

by Staff

 

Coming up from Dark Horse this October, Victor Santos’ original graphic novel Rashomon tells the tale of a samurai murder mystery in the noir tones that only Santos can craft. Inspired in part by the famous story and film by the same name, this story features Detective Heigo Kobayashi who takes up the case of a murdered samurai in feudal Japan.

Victor Santos (Polar, Violent Love) pours his love of Samurai films into his stunning artwork on this new book, which actually brings together two chapters of a story previously published in Europe, and appearing here in English for the first time.

Comicon.com previously brought you some process artwork from Santos on this book, but now we have a preview of some unlettered interior art as well.

Here is a sneak peek at Santos’ Rashomon:
