Ronin v1 #3, 1983 - Out of place and time, Ronin appears for the first time in full samurai garb. His attempts to tame a wild horse (see interior page below) is absent of dialogue, relying on Frank Miller's visuals to tell the story. With the exception of a few pages, most of the art emphasizes line over shading and shapes. Of the four two-page spreads, three occur in sequence, illustrating Ronin's confrontation with armed bikers. Miller's finest scene is the last page, a splash of the title character in action. This is number 3 of 6 Ronin issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Ronin issues.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
