Debuting in 1998 in the pages of the magazine Nou Nou Hau, Takashi Okazaki's manga Afro Samurai soon acquired a sizeable cult following.  

Inspired by the writer/artist's love of soul and hip hop, it's set in a feudal futuristic Japan, and follows a warrior (the impressively-maned Afro) who saw his father killed by a gunslinger when he was a child. As an adult, he sets off on a quest for revenge, battling an array of assassins and warlords in the process. The manga was later adapted into an anime miniseries, and also inspired a TV film starring Samuel L Jackson. 

Titan Comics are now set to publish a remastered, two-volume "director's cut" edition of the original manga. Volume One is due for release on 13 September. Thanks to Titan Comics, we have 10 paperback copies to give away. To put your name in the hat for the chance to win one, simply answer the question below.
