Dark Horse to Host Legendary Manga Author Kazuo Koike at San Diego Comic Con

Koike's New Lone Wolf and Cub will go on sale in 2014

Following the recent Anime Expo announcement that they plan to bring the New Lone Wolf and Cub manga to North America, Dark Horse has detailed their schedule for hosting legendary author Kazuo Koike at San Diego Comic Con. Koike will be signing at the Dark Horse booth, #2615, Thursday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., as well as Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

 

New Lone Wolf and Cub is an eleven-volume series that picks up right at the end of Lone Wolf and Cub—which left Itto Ogami’s son Daigoro on a blood-strewn battlefield. What will happen now to the young child with the gaze of shishoogan—the eyes of one who has come in from death, across countless scenes of slaughter?

 

As original artist Goseki Kojima has passed away, Koike entrusts Hideki Mori (winner of the 1995 Shogakukan Manga Award for Bokko) to depict again this age of honor, adventure, and brutality. Dark Horse’s best-selling series of all time (over one million copies sold) now continues with New Lone Wolf and Cub!

 
The first part of a new omnibus edition run of the first Lone Wolf and Cub series was recently released.
