Fran Guil returns with a new visual and informative work. This time we travel to Sengoku-jidai Japan, the Country at War (16th century), where they fight day in and day out. The samurai are at their peak, but are these famous warriors really what we think they are? Are they really guided by bushido? Is the katana really the soul of the samurai? Sengoku samurai or Edo samurai - which is the real thing?

Amusing, full-colour vignettes illustrate in detail the appearance and the most diverse situations of these legendary warriors. We will discover the real protagonists of the battlefields of the time: the ashigarus (light-footed).

Sieges, battles, Mongols, warrior monks, samurai women, Korea, the arrival of the Portuguese, the arquebus, the recipe for oniguiri. And we'll still find time to talk about ninjas!

In the same vein as the previous The Late Roman Cartoon Army! (2020), this book is short, succinct and entertaining. The protagonists are undoubtedly the more than 50 drawings that, accompanied by an explanatory text, make up the chapters of the book. In this case, the reference to films reinforces this visual work.

Artist by vocation and reenactor (historical reenactor), Fran Guil has developed an amateur career as a drawer, painter and varied artist. After hundreds of works he has managed to create his own style, combining a handmade production with the right digital touch. And although he paints on any subject, he is motivated by history. He has published some of his illustrations in the prestigious magazine Desperta Ferro, painted for Colección Museográfica de Gilena and made hundreds of commissioned illustrations.

Motivated by his friends, he has taken the step of bringing together his best vignettes; comic, fresh and historical in a unique volume on the Roman army in late antiquity (which he himself recreates by designing his own equipment).

Shocked by the recent events of the 2020 Pandemic he published a small book of cartoons "I'm Staying Home Too" , to entertain everyone and reflect in a funny way the experiences of the housebound society.

And with this Publisher an interesting work in cartoon too about roman army at 4th. century "The Late Roman Cartoon Army!"
