Striking similarities between Lone Wolf & Cub and Koike and Kojima’s sidebar storyline Samurai Executioner (known as Kubikiri Asa in Japan) are evident in the cool attitude, rebellious honor, and unflappable bushido of the lead characters of both series, but readers will delight in the whole new genre of Edo-era samurai spirit in Samurai Executioner. Wrapped tightly around a core of crime fiction, we enter a world of harsh and violent crime, and the forces up against it. In this volume, after a few initial stories of criminals’ lives leading to execution, 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 and her grueling and violent end. It’s like a history lesson, art education, and pulp sensation, all wrapped up in one fantastic series.
