Vol. 5: Ten Fingers, One Life
(3 ratings)


Striking similarities betweenLone Wolf and Cuband Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima's sidebar story line,Samurai Executioner(known asKubikiri Asain Japan), are evident in the cool attitude, rebellious honor, and unflappablebushidoof the lead characters of both series, but readers will delight in the whole new crime-fiction genre of Edo-era samurai spirit inSamurai Executioner. Here, we enter a world of harsh and violent crime and the forces that stand against it. In this volume, after initial stories of criminals' lives leading to their executions, we meet two Edo-era police officers and explore their specialized methods of capturing crafty criminals. Then, in Koike's signature fashion, the volume ends with a psycho killer's grueling and violent end. It's a history lesson, an art education, and a pulp sensation, all wrapped up in one fantastic series. FOR MATURE READERS
