Featured Guest Comment

"The images in the comic are of Japanese warriors fighting to the death in and around a stream.  While all this commotion is taking place, a delicate white feather floats in and around the battlefield.  The text is written in the form of a haiku.  It is this juxtaposition of violence and beauty that permeates so much of Japanese art from the 15th century to the present..."
