Lone Wolf And Cub
Volume 18: Twilight of the Kurokuwa
The shogun himself has given Retsudo a stern warning: do something about Itto Ogami, the Lone Wolf, or the Yagyu clan will fall out of favor. Now Retsudo must turn to the Firewatchers, a select band of warriors, for help—as well as the last surviving members of the legendary Kurokuwa ninja clan! As death stalks him, Itto is confronted by desperate, impoverished peasants who want him to share his fortune with those who are suffering. With Itto's cub, Daigoro, caught in the middle, what will he decide?
