We are very pleased to be reading yet another classic manga. But many fans might point out that Lone Wolf and Cub is a gekiga: a term denoting a slightly more serious medium than manga. Lone Wolf and Cub is now well known in the west since the, now defunct, First Comics publishsed Lone Wolf and Cub in 1987, thereafter Dark Horse has been publishing english tarnslations. But most people in the west are probably aware of Lone Wolf and Cub from the numeorus flims made of Ogami Ittō, the Shogun's disgraced executioner travelling the roads of mediaeval Japan as amasterless samurai, a ronin, and working as an assassin
If you have any interest in manga or gekiga please contact Streatham Library and reserve a copy of Lone Wolf and Cub to read and do please turn up for the meeting to discuss the book.
