I hate to admit it, but this actually looks interesting from a curiosity standpoint:

Samurai: Heaven and Earth #1 (of 5)

Writer: Ron Marz
Artist: Luke Ross
Cover Artist: Luke Ross
Colorist: Jason Keith
Genre: Action/Adventure, Fiction, Fantasy

How far will a man travel for love? What battles will he fight? Will he cross heaven and earth to be by the side of the woman he loves?

Beginning in the feudal Japan of 1704, Samurai: Heaven and Earth follows a lone samurai warrior sworn to be reunited with the love of his life who has been spirited away by his enemies. His pursuit of her will carry him farther than he could have imagined-from his native Japan to the sprawling empire of China, across Europe, and finally to Paris itself. There, in the fabled halls of King Louis XIV's Versailles, he must cross blades with the greatest swordsmen ever known if he is to reclaim his love.

• The fan-favorite team of writer Ron Marz and artist Luke Ross, fresh off their triumphant finale on Green Lantern, turn their skills to a historical epic in the tradition of Lone Wolf and Cub and Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers. Marz and Ross are joined by Eisner-nominated colorist Jason Keith.

I've got the series-it does make for good reading. The samurai in question ends up in China and also runs into the Three Musketeers in France. Negatives include the fact that much of what's supposed to be Japanese is Chinese, and they have the interior of Japan being invaded by China.
