Lone Wolf and Cub

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QSSTY1VC

First 4 volumes, each of which has 10-12 comics in it.

Be warned, it's a massive download, about 240 megs.

I know we have some *big* LW&C fans here, what are some opinions on this classic series?

Best comic book series of all time by far.
If you haven't read you must.
If you don't I wouldn't even deem to call you a running dog of the yagyu.

Thanks for the links. Stickgrappler posted through volume 18 on the discussion overload thread big thanks to him as well.

I read part of volume one last night and found the comic to be pretty interesting. I liked the minimalistic style, and how the creators allow the art to tell large portions of the story without interruption by dialogue.

The comic reads like a Kurosawa film although I don't know which direction the influence flows in.

through volume 18

Holy *shit,* dude - that's like 2 gigs :-O

Brilliant comic.


I have the original issues 1-30, I think. I think I'm looking to get rid of them, actually. Anyone interested?


I'll check the actual issue count this weekend.

I'm enjoying this a lot. Does anybody have some opinions about the comics posted above?

dug up my paper copies from first comics, miller has good covers and there are intros written by him...will probably scan these soon :-)

started to reread them

ue(up)

from what i heard this manga is actually very historically accurate.

there may not have been a lone wolf but the people are portrayed based on historical fact.

also the characters and actions are done in an ancient setting but the reader could easily see modern man taking such actions.

so the manga is able to draw from the rich background of history and bring in some of the fantasy elements of samurai and ninja.

dont get me started on the artwork!

no love for me :-(

sigh

for stick

I walked in to my LCS the other day and they had all the Lone Wolf and Cub books on the 1/2 off table.

It fucking killed me to only buy 2.

THANK YOU SHIBBY!

doh! misread, thought that said 22 pg glossary, fast dl, checked it out and it was only 2 pgs

lol

Western genre = Samurai Genre

other than location, race, and weapons of choice

LOL - it still tickles me how, when the Japanese were first exposed to the classic American western in the 50's, they ate that stuff up at a pace that makes American interest in manga look teeny.

IIRC, one famous director said he loved Westerns far and away above samurai movies for one simple reason - in westerns, people got shot at the drop of a dime; no need to posture, wait for the insult, follow all the codes of bushido, etc. - just shoot 'em ;-) He said rather ruefully, "I imagine most samurai wish they could have killed their opponents as quickly as the cowboys did!"
