Corporate intrigue versus Bushido honor in a world of android assassins, cybernetic nomads, and biological warfare on a global scale.
A ground-up re-imagining of the original Lone Wolf and Cub manga produced in conjunction with Kazuo Koike, the writer and co-creator of Lone Wolf and Cub, this stunning series has captured the attention of comics readers everywhere. Writer Mike Kennedy's thoughtful stories take the reader to a world where the line between man and machine is blurred, and artist Francisco Ruiz Velasco charges every scene with razor-edge excitement. This volume collects issues #5-8 of the series, plus "The Red File"--the recovered documents that reveal the scope of Cygnat Owari Corporation's plot to capture the young girl Daisy Ogami, and to kill her android protector Itto.

The graphics and artwork are vividly stunning, with the sceneries detailed. Although the storyline/genre could be stronger, I enjoyed this series none the less and judged it more on the layout and presentation.

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!
