Don't skip it if you have the comics.

There is very little to add to all the great and well deserved complements that this series has earned however I neglected to purchase this copy (starting at issue 13) because I have the entire Dark Horse run. However I happended to leaf through this issue at a local store and found to my shock that the first 8 stories were totally unknown to me.

They are first rate although for the first two stories the art seems uneven as if the Artist hadn't settled exactly how Ito would look.

The 8th story where Lone Wolf is revealed as the Shogun's former executioner is the best of the lot. The final story is Issue #1 from the Dark Horse series.

Even that story has some slightly different translation in the dialoge and is worth your attention for that.

Whatever the reason this is the finest comic series that I have seen in my 28 years of collecting. There is not a better choice for your money.

What did you think of this review?
