5.0 out of 5 stars This is a series that gets better and better., 26 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Lone Wolf and Cub Volume 6: Lanterns For the Dead: Lanterns for the Dead v. 6 (Lone Wolf and Cub (Dark Horse)) (Paperback)
After a slightly shaky start in volumes 1 and 2 Lone Wolf and Cub has got better and better. The slightly repetetive action and not quite fully developed characterisations of the early books begin to give way as the series progresses and features more varied storylines and touching moments. In volume five you have a particularly poignant moment as Daigoro cares for his injured father and refuses the chance of a normal life. It's moments like these, allied with the firm resolve of Itto Ogami, that make this series such a joy. The bond between father and son is never simplified or oversweetened, and is often unforgiveably harsh, yet the emotions that pervade the stories, usually expressed without words, are worth more than any number of bloodletting action scenes. (Although action junkies will get a brilliant fix from Lone Wolf and Cub in general and volume five in particular.)
