Volume 9 last edited by jazz1987 on 11/14/18 04:57AM View full history

With waves of warriors seemingly incapable of killing ronin swordmaster Ōgami Ittō, the Shogun opts for stealth and subterfuge to attack the Lone Wolf. Using a network of prostitute spies to corner Ittō, a master poisoner waits in the shadows to accomplish what razor-sharp steel could not! Collects two stories from Lone Wolf and Cub volume 19, all of volume 20 and four stories from volume 21.

The acclaimed classic by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima.

Eisner and Harvey Award winner!
