Description


With waves of warriors seemingly incapable of killing ronin swordmaster Ōgami Ittō, the Shogun opts for stealth and subterfuge to attack the Lone Wolf. Using a network of prostitute spies to corner Ittō, a master poisoner waits in the shadows to accomplish what razor-sharp steel could not!

Created by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, Lone Wolf and Cub has sold over a million copies of its first Dark Horse English-language editions, and this acclaimed masterpiece of graphic fiction is now available in larger format, value-priced editions.
