Expect the same legendary drama, frantic action, and stoic samurai stature, combined with the exemplary art and storytelling that made Lone Wolf and Cub one of the most popular and influential comic books in the world! Book jacket.
From the creators of Lone Wolf and Cub comes Samurai Executioner. Few know of this precursor to the legendary ronin saga, but before Koike and Kojima created Itto Ogami, they created Kubikiri Asa, better known to Lone Wolf readers as Decapitator Asaemon. If you remember the equal to Itto, bearer of the sword Onibocho, the man charged with the duty of testing the swords for the shogun, Samurai Executioner is based on the decapitator himself, in life before his fatal duel with Lone Wolf.
