Lone Wolf and Cub, Vol. 1: The Assassin's Road by Kazuo Koike
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I picked up this gem a couple of weeks ago and blew through it. I love how some of the stories in this book are pretty much panel for panel what happens in the movie, Shogun Assassin, as the movie is based off of Lone Wolf and Cub series. If I have just one complaint, it's that the text is sometimes hard on the eyes, what with all the whiteness on the page at times. But if you like samurai epics, which I certainly do, then you can't do any better than this. I'm going to pick up the next few volumes soon.
