Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 
Since its 1970 debut, Koike’s tale of an outlaw samurai taking his infant son along on his road to revenge has set the standard by which all other historical manga epics are judged. As former executioner Ogami Ittou walks the brutal path of the assassin, his will to survive and his harsh but intense love for little Daigoro are tested again and again. The story and artwork exist in perfect harmony, giving scenes of fast action, deep emotion, or nature’s stark beauty equal but unique impact. The translation errs on the side of excessive accuracy, and readers will find themselves referring to the glossary often. In addition to their convenience and affordability, these new omnibus editions boast one more improvement, a larger 5" x 7" page size, which even owners of the earlier Dark Horse trade paperbacks (TPBs) will appreciate. The first three volumes of the earlier Dark Horse TPBs are included here.

Verdict A classic in every sense of the word. Strongly recommended for fans of historical epics and essential for all graphic novel collections.—Neil Derksen, Pierce Cty. Lib. Syst., Tacoma
