Item description for Okko: The Cycle Of Water (Okko) by Hub, Stephan Pecayo & Edward Gauvin...
Overview 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Okko: The Cycle Of Water (Okko)?
Eh. Jun 15, 2008
Not one of my favorites by a long shot. Art was okay, story was okay.
Okko is a great read Feb 22, 2008
Okko tells the story of a disparate band of friends in a feodal Japanesque setting. The leader - Okko - is a ronin, a masterless samurai who travels the countryside with his mottly crew slaying demons. He's in many ways a reluctant hero and the under-dog and both his swordsmanship and his cunning serves him well. His travelling companions are equally interesting and have their part to play in the things to come.
It is a beuatiful comic and should appeal to both mature comic readers as well as gamers of L5R. The story is intriguing and the characters are likeable, especially the saké-drinking monk. There is magic and mystical creatures though not in abundance as it clearly is a world formost inhabited by humans.
The comic has been released in France (you can find it on French this site) and hopefully all parts will be translated into English. [...]I can't recommend it enough!
