Lone Wolf and Cub, Vol. 1: Assassin's Road

Lone Wolf and Cub, Vol. 1: The Assassin's Road - Kazuo Koike, Goseki Kojima An excellent beginning to this series. A lone assassin with a child. This has the makings of an epic story, and as we learn why he walks the path that he does, we see the character gaining depth. The stories in this volume range from heavy action to very moving moments. Having read Samurai Executioner, and having enjoyed, I can see I will enjoy this series as well. Excellent writing and stories. Good art, and a fast pace. A good overall combination.
