A key page from RONIN, the ground-breaking prestige-format, creator-owned series that paved the way for Sandman, Watchmen and Dark Knight. A labor of love for Frank Miller with manga-inspired layouts, sublime cross-hatching, and cinematic story-telling -- I love the incredible fire-lit imagery on this page!

Significant content here as well: Ronin retells his origin ("15 years have passed...") and sacred vow ("With this sword - I will kill Agat"). A fantastic Blood Sword panel is followed by Lord Ozaki's spirit describing the sword's magical properties ("The blood of evil men empowers the sword against Agat").

After 35 years, Frank Miller has released only a handful of Ronin pages, so any Ronin page is worth sharing.

FM's Ronin pages are just pure gold. After establishing himself as a superstar, FM was willing to abandon the style that made him famous, to push forward and take risks. What better way to pay homage to his new found inspiration of Japanese style of art and storytelling. Sure we saw a glimpse of it with the Wolverine mini-series and the Daredevil #191 cover but those were inked by others. With Ronin, FM was able to ink the work himself, experimenting with cross hatching. A great addition to your collection Dino. Cheers! N.
