NEW LONE WOLF AND CUB TP VOL 01
(W) Kazuo Koike (A) Hideki Mori
Kazuo Koike returns to Lone Wolf and Cub with an epic sequel, New Lone Wolf and Cub. Ogami Itto, the Lone Wolf, and his nemesis, Yagyu Retsudo, lie dead after their titanic duel. Ogami's young son, Daigoro, stays at his father's side, and none dares help the child-save Togo Shigetada, a samurai on a desperate and deadly mission of his own!
OK, I'm recommending this more on my absolute love for the original series than a guarantee that this new one will be badass. True, the original artist, Goeski Kojima has passed away, but this series sees Daigoro, Itto's son, take center stage, but will he grow to be a master assassin demon like his father or will he find his own path now that the Lone Wolf is dead? Epic samurai action set against the backdrop of ancient edo, Lone Wolf and Cub is one of the greatest human sagas to ever be put on paper and here's hoping that this book will continue the grand tradition set forth by its predecessor!
