Yagyu Retsudo's failure to stop Ōgami Ittō, has brought an ultimatum from the Shōogun: kill the Lone Wolf or face execution. But Yagyu will not go forth empty handed. To aid his cause, the Shogun places the Firewatchers--his own elite bodyguards--under Yagyu's command!

Created by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, Lone Wolf and Cub has sold over a million copies of its first Dark Horse English-language editions, and this acclaimed masterpiece of graphic fiction is now available in larger format, value-priced editions.
