Year 1108 in the official calendar of the Pajan Empire. This turbulent age, often called the Asagiri Era or the Time of Mists, saw the great clans wage decades-long wars in attempts to seize power. Far from the fields of battle, Okko the ronin heads a small group of demon hunters, wandering the realms of Empire. He is accompanied by Noburo, a mysterious giant who hides his face behind a red mask, and the whimsical monk Noshin, the sake lover with the power to summon and commune with the spirits of nature. When Tikku's sister Little Carp is kidnapped by pirates, the young fisherman enlists the group's help in finding her. But the quest will have a price, and will lead our four heroes much farther afield than they'd ever imagined... The first of five Cycles by French comics master Hub.

I am quite enjoying this. Bold art with a great flow in the layout. Fantastic character development revealing spectacularly in depth and fun characters.The story and the characters are full of well written insights and a continued capacity for change and mystery. A slight lack of depth in the art has kept me from sliding into this one as much as i would like, But I am at the top of that slide and looking forward to the continued series.
