im into volume five of what is the dark horse release of the manga, and i
have to say lone wolf has quickly become a favorite of mine. the way he
utilizes his son in his assassinations is quite skillful, and his whole
obsession with meifumado <buddhist version of hell> is similar to Mu, total
emptiness. i think there is some reference to that in volume four. In any
case, Lone Wolf and Cub is a definite must read.
