"Ronin Runt Rearing"

No epic manga series hits me quite like the classic, Lone Wolf and Cub. The plots are brief, yet involved. And they usually possess an unexpected depth. The art is alive with fluid lines and solid ink rendering. From the most reflective moments to the most ferocious battle scenes, the pacing and illustrations convey everything with a visceral touch that swings steadily from tender to graphically violent.

Also, it's just a really damn cool comic about a ronin and his son, walking around Japan with a stroller full of weapons, getting into all sorts of sword fights and badass adventures. Ya know... comics with true grit!
