Synopses & Reviews
The legend of Lone Wolf and Cub continues to grow in this latest chapter of Koike and Kojima`s epic samurai masterpiece chronicling the wanderings of Japan`s deadliest assassin, Itto Ogami, and his infant son, Daigoro. In this volume, Ogami takes on the most dangerous killer of the countryside, foils the plans of a deceptive gambling troupe, tricks an evil lord into exposing his weak underbelly, and pits himself against the Shogun`s dangerous and deadly Kurokawa ninja! Drawing extensively from Sun Tzu's The Art of War, and featuring the saddest puppy-dog story ever published, this must-have volume is packed with action and emotion.
