FIRST LOOK: Promo image from the new series of Samurai Jack

June 16th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Well, we’ve all be patiently waiting for the return of Samurai Jack and now we get our first piece of promo art…

And it’s exactly what we’d expect from Genndy Tartakovsky as it was revealed at Annecy Festival D’Animation in France.

Jack will return later this year on Adult Swim’s Toonami block.

One thing some have pointed out the blood in the new image as it was something that, to our knowledge, never really appeared in the original series where Jack fought robots and the like mostly.

Let us know what you guys think but Jack’s back, baby, Jack’s back!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
