Cover: Guan Yu: Blood Brothers to the End [A Chinese Legend]

“The importance of honor and loyalty are highlighted over Guan Yu’s physical and strategic prowess, intrigue is given weight equal to fighting, and the bloodshed is kept (mainly) offscreen, meaning the battles are depicted mostly in single panels rather than in more involving multipanel sequences. Most effective, though, is the unfolding of Guan Yu’s life, charted not by his incredible triumphs but by his failures, which provide readers used to infallible heroes with a worthwhile change of perspective.” —Booklist
