MISC. MANGA, *Amala's Blade
Amala is a sword for hire who is constantly haunted by all the people she ever killed, all while trying to axe the rebellious techno-pirate, Captain Cha'Kooh for her vizier. Amala manages to finally best the Santa Claus-looking swashbuckler, and takes control of what remains of his crew. The rest of the series has Amala’s adventures as a master assassin while still having all new ghosts to add to her entourage, including a steampunk cyber-monkey!
Newcomer writer Steve Horton does a nice job of blending the two main genres into a decent story, and equally new artist Micael Dialynas breathes a lot of life into the characters with his gripping style. Definitely look it up!
