A young girl may hold the key to saving the world -- or destroying it. A corporation wants her secret -- no matter what it may be. Her only companion is an android -- who is accused of killing her father. The first full-length adventure of young Daisy Ogami and her android protector Itto is now available in one volume! Plunge into the dystopian world one hundred years in the future, where human-like "Emulation Constructs" fight to enjoy the same rights as their human creators, where the vast majority of the world's human population struggles to eke out an existence in a hostile landscape, and where both sides are victim to corporate whim and the deadly effects of a manmade plague. Collecting the first four issues of the series. A ground-up re-imagining of the original Lone Wolf and Cub manga, this series is being done in association with, and under the watchful eye of Kazuo Koike, the writer and co-creator of Lone Wolf and Cub.

Great book. Never read the original but took a chance and ordered the first 3 of this new series. Didn't disappoint.

Ok, I'll admit a little secret to you... I've never been a fan of Francisco Ruiz Velasco. Well, not really. I thought his artwork in "Battlegods" was all flash and no substance. And I know I was SUPPOSED to be impressed, but sometimes the more you're expected to feel a certain way, the more you don't... y'know what I mean? Anyway, here's Velasco again doing the covers and interior art for LW 2100 (the sequel to Japan's enormously popular "Lone Wolf and Cub" series), and I have to tell you... this stuff is magnificent. And the inking and coloring are second to none! Ok, so now I'm changing my mind.... I mean, the images in this book are simply fantastic, and Velasco's style is improving with each issue -- you can literally see his work evolving for the better. For really good sci-fi mixed with a dose of manga-style ninja cool, you've gotta check this series out!
