Creator Kazuo Koike's storytelling is masterful; every word has purpose. There's nothing wasted. Ogami says very little so when he does speak we know to sit up and pay attention.

Much of the time Kazuo lets Goseki Kojima's amazingly kinetic black and white visuals carry the story along. It's not the typical clean-lined big-eyed style you may picture when you hear the word `manga.' It's grittier, with deft strokes of the pen.
When the blood starts to fly, Goseki captures the intensity better than any other manga artist I've ever encountered.

I'm happy to say that Dark Horse chose not to attempt to translate words with no direct English equivalent. Instead, they included a short but informative glossary of terms at the back of the book to explain the meanings.

The book collects together Lone Wolf and Cub volumes 1 and 2, and the first part of the stories from volume 3 of the original series (16 chapters in total).

If you enjoy the book, I highly recommend all 6 of the original language film adaptations (not the dubbed versions). The Complete Lone Wolf & Cub Boxset [DVD] [1972]

masterpiece, the art with its use of black and white with grey tones drawn in a way to give the feel or the samurai era, i am now determined to buy every single one of these.

Great value, recollecting the Lone Wolf and Cub story in a 3 in 1 format and printed on a larger scale. Cant really ask for more.
One of the definitive samurai, ronin Mangas, a must for any fan of Edo Japan, swordplay and the like.
