Volume 4: Portrait of Death
A frenetic mix of samurai honor, base violence, and the blood of beheadings, Samurai Executioner is not for the faint of heart. For those who love blood-and-guts crime drama, historical fiction, and brutal action, this is right up your alley. The creators of Lone Wolf and Cub bring you one Kubikiri Asa, a young ronin samurai who helps keep the peace by putting the fear of beheading into Edo's criminals. But it doesn't always work, and so he has to follow through with his threats. Full of squirting blood, fast-paced samurai sword work, and the drama that comes from human corruption, Samurai Executioner is like no other classic manga.
• Never before published in America, Samurai Executioner is the companion to one of the most seminal works of manga, Lone Wolf and Cub!
• For mature readers.
