Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Dark Horse Comics has rereleased this title from the famous Lone Wolf and Cub series, a collection of graphic novels purely for adults -- an Akira Kurosawa movie rendered onto the page. It is the story of Ogami Itto, the shogun's executioner, and his infant son Daigoro. A rival faction, envious of Ogami's position, murder his family and set him up. Forced into exile Ogami takes the Assassin's Road and begins his blood quest to redeem his name.

    Lone Wolf and Cub: The Assasin's Road

    I am deeply saddened that there are no reviews here.. This is a well known classic manga with an amazing story and it is just something you don't see in today's mangas. Sorry for the short review, but this is something that you need to read in order to truely appreciate this masterpiece from the 1970's..
