Back to Genchu and friends! Well, maybe not friends… acquaintances.

    Profit speaks with a voice that can be heard by all, but corrupts many.

    • suburban_samurai

      That’s two prophet/it puns for one page!

  • Thiago Kurovski

    Well, you have to think about his situation back home! His unbearably cute kids and beautiful, heroic wife need the money… Genchu, you bastard! Denying small children their milk!

    • suburban_samurai

      Genchu is doing his best to make sure the mlikless children still have a father! A futile effort, perhaps.

  • BeigePaladin

    Genchu, rocking the half open shirt.

    gotta say I like this group of chaps

    • suburban_samurai

      Good, because they’re only going to get more awesome, or at least get into more awesome situations!

  • KungFuKlobber

    Wu and Tang also only hear profit: specifically, the prophet who warned them about these priests and Cho walking into a sake bar.

    (Written puns with homophones don’t always work too well.)

    • suburban_samurai

      Oh, I don’t know how all these puns keep ending up in the comments section. I think we need to implement a ‘one pun per page’ policy!

  • randompersonality

    This cracks me up… lol… Man, that guy only hears what he wants to hear, doesn’t he?

    • John Smith

      “A man, he hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest…”–from “The Boxer”, by Simon & Garfunkel. 😀

      • Mike

        ~”Asking for a Shogun’s wages he comes looking for a sale, but he gets no offers. Just arrested by the guards on 7th avenue!”~

  • Annoyinglecture

    I dunnooo Alex… These guys are looking a fair bit higher in quality than I remember them… Careful now!

    • suburban_samurai

      I’m going to take any perceived elevation in quality as a compliment, sir!

  • Mike

    Quick! Do what you did in the market place and fire a gun up into the air! It’ll impress them.

    • suburban_samurai

      How did you know??

  • Red

    Aah… The magical language of Money! A speech spoken by true men and sometimes unspeakable evils but let’s not talk about that.

  • Have a rock

    It would be funny if Genchu is actually the Taoist priest the prophecy warns of.

    • suburban_samurai

      What a twist! We’re retconning that in as I type.

  • Gianni Comoretto

    I don’t like very much the face of the portuguese merchant. It shouts “greed” loud, it is not good for a merchant. A good merchant should inspire you the feeling you could become rich trading with him, should speaks “money”. As it is it seems doomed and short lived, not dangerous, and I am quite sure it will be dangerous in the end.

    • suburban_samurai

      Ah, but to the natives, his face is intriguing in its foreign features, why not!

  • Sunwu

    Does this lord belong to another feudal clan? One we haven’t seen before??

    • suburban_samurai

      Well, it wouldn’t be too bright of Genchu to hide out in Wataro territory after fleeing from Hirotomo!

    • MoveAlongCitizen

      It’s Medieval Japan. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting at least THREE Lords.

  • John Smith

    “The riskier the road, the greater the profit.” :)

  • Neska

    Well, he’s prolly gonna be buddies with the holy men . . . prolly not the merchant though . . .

    • Kid Chaos

      Just wait until he meets Cho.

      • Neska

        He’ll just have to keep them all out of the bars . . .

  • Alicy-sunberg

    huh. Portuguese. so that comic can be actually historically acurate. That’s quite fantastic.

  • Bree

    Rereading this, I just now noticed in the last panel the priest is PRAYING.

    Nice touch.
