I know, I thought the same thing too. Why does the Japanese woman on the cover have red hair. Because her mother is not Japanese. This is interesting story of two sisters- one of whom talks to the ghost of her father. It is also about strangness. There is some nudity and attempted rape, but the story is nicely told.
En parcourant le rayon bande-dessinée de la bibliothèque, je suis tombée sur celui-là. Il m’a direct attiré par sa couverture. Je n’ai même pas cherché à savoir le résumé, je me suis lancée dans sa lecture. Ce fut alors une belle découverte.

Nous suivons l’histoire de Isabellae, une guerrière qui cherche sa soeur depuis plusieurs années. En effet, leurs parents sont morts et depuis ce jour, elles ont été séparées l’une de l’autre. Isabellae n’a de cesse de vouloir la retrouver quitte à devoir tue
Interesting read about Isabellae, wandering samurai in search of her sister.
Art is reminiscent of Samurai Jack, very clean lines and coloring.

Story is one standard for heroes-in-making, Isabella is looking for her sister after a tragic event in which their mother was killed by villagers after being accused of witchery.

Seems to be a promising start in the saga, looking forward to follow up issues.
