Lone Wolf, the gift that keeps on giving.

Got the next four installments of the Lone Wolf collected volumes for Christmas. Volumes 18 - 21 in effect. This is another labour of love of sorts, but it's a fantastic series and I've been absorbed by every one of the 100 (or so) chapters so far. The icy steel of Itto and the innocent, yet grim determination of Daigoro are enthralling. The artwork vividly describes the speed and precision of the characters' movements and the dialogue preserves the rigidly caste driven social system and intricate layers of manners and ritual. Truly a classic, and I think the covers by Sienkiewicz and Miller are, to coin a phrase, 'chuffin excellent'.
