Format: Paperback
This is a pivotal volume in the tale of 'Lone wolf and Cub'. Previous volumes have given sketchy details as to Ogami Itto's history, how he was drawn into conflict with the Yagyu - but in this episode the nature of his rise to the position of Executioner for the Shogun is described. This key element to the tale makes clear why the Yagyu harbor against him a burning fury. Itto and Diagoro will face the Yagyu again, as they fling more resuorces against him - the tension is eased as several other small vignettes tell tales of others with whom he comes into contact with. Critical to the series, this is again, the continuation of a fabulous tale...

Format: Paperback
The saga of Lone Wolf and Cub should be in the collection of anybody with an interest in Bushido, the Japanese warrior philosophy. Goseki Kojima's powerful storytelling and the late Kazuo Koike's brutal visuals have captured the essence of the quest of an honourable man in the cruel world of Shogun-era Japan. There are many manga series, but none better than Lone Wolf and Cub.

"Chains of Death," Volume 8 in the Lone Wolf and Cub manga epic by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, offers something of a change of pace as Ogami Itto's walk on the Assassin's Road has several diversions:
(39) "Tidings of the Geese" is a short tale in which one of the Shogun's inspectors informs Ogami Itto that the Yagyu have sent assassins to kill Lord Hotta. The fight sequence involves a desperate ploy by the Yagyu. Lone Wolf is not an assassin in this one, for, as he observes: "So long as the Yagyu scheme in the shadows of the shogunate, there can be no return to enlightened rule. Nor any end to our quest."
(40) "The Frozen Crane" has Lone Wolf and Cub coming upon a woman and her dead husband's younger brother who have finally avenge his death. Ogami Itto refuses to bear witness to what has happened and has to teach the woman a lesson about the true quest for vengeance.
(41) "Chains of Death" has the Yagyu using the Kurokuwa clan to try and kill Lone Wolf and Cub. This episode becomes a series of battles in the snow with Kojima's artwork carrying pretty much the entire story. The fact that Kurokuwa have finally submitted to the Yagyu is not lost on Ogami Itto. Visually the best story in this volume, the tale that gives the volume its title is not one of the more significant stories.
(42) "The Infinite Path" tells the complete story of the duel that earned Ogami Itto the position of Kogi Kaishakunin. We knew the basics of the tale, but this telling involves a duel between Lone Wolf and Restsudo Yagyu. The flashback makes it clear that the reason why the Yagyu were so desperate to be Kogi Kaishakunin could offer Lone Wolf an end to his quest.
(43) "Thread of Tears" finds Ogami Itto meditating at a temple while Daigoro meets a young widow.

The greatest Samurai comic ever, this beautifully written and drawn series should be read by everyone. It's had an influence on many filmmakers and comic book artists (Frank Miller who did the US covers comes to mind). I won't spoil anything, but I will say this - never a dull moment or a bad story in the series!
