Review

Judge Bao and the Jade Phoenix (Judge Bao, volume 1)

The incorruptible Judge Bao, whose character is based on a Song Dynasty-era official, travels to a city where he honors a dying woman’s wish to save her son from the corrupt officials running the town. In so doing, he reunites the son and the woman he was betrothed to when her father would use her as a political pawn. Gorgeous pen and ink drawings accompany this complicated story.
