Based on the original art and story telling of manga artist Takashi Okazaki, Afro Samurai Resurrection tells the tale of a black samurai’s quest for revenge and justice for his murdered father. Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as the uncompromising hero, Afro, and his motor-mouthed sidekick, Ninja Ninja. When his father’s body is stolen from its grave, Afro is forced to pick up his sword and wreak bloody vengeance against an army of deadly foes lead by a sadistic mastermind. Recommended for mature audiences.
Takashi Okazaki appeared at New York Comic Con two years ago to promote the original series, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he makes another appearance. The Afro Samurai Resurrection panel will take place on Saturday, beginning at 5:15pm, in Room 1A04.
