Publisher Comments:

From the pen of Kazuo Koike, of Lone Wolf and Cub fame, comes Lady Snowblood, the manga that eventually would become an inspiration for director Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill blockbuster films. A story of pure vengeance, Lady Snowblood tells the tale of a daughter born of a singular purpose, to avenge the death of her family at the hands of a gang of thugs, a purpose woven into her soul from the time of her gestation. Beautifully drafted and full of bloody, sexy action, Lady Snowblood lives up to its title and reputation.

lukas, April 27, 2007 (view all comments by lukas)
Written by Kazuo Koike, the man behind the epic "Lone Wolf and Cub," this 4-part series is a bloody, well drawn, uncompromising revenge saga. The title character was conceived in prison solely to take revenge for her mother and boy does she ever. What follows is intrigue, excitement, lesbian sex, and lots and lots of violent death. She uses a thin sword concealed in an umbrella! The basis for two films and one of the many inspirations for "Kill Bill," this is essential for fans of the genre.
