LONE WOLF and CUB by Ron Salas



It's still Sunday in the west coast, innit?

I first came across Lone Wolf and Cub through the First Comics editions. It was probably the first manga I ever saw. Immediately I could tell it was something special. The dynamic art by Goseki Kojima and the severe yet nuanced story by Kazuo Koike blew my young mind.

It still does.
