If Sun Tzu's Art of War and Musashi's Book of Five Rings were to be drawn into a manga, then Path of the Assassin would be that manga. An impenetrable castle must be defeated, the country's best samurai swayed, competing warlords politicked and tricked into line. All this sounds technical and textbook, so how does it turn out to be so sexy and dramatic and fun? Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima (Lone Wolf & Cub) are masters of samurai storytelling, and Path of the Assassin is no slouch when it comes to action, drama, tactics, sex, love, honor, and a terrific, engaging story.

    Volume 9 - 1st printing. "Battle for Power: Part 1!" Written by Kazuo Koike. Art by Goseki Kojima. The world of samurai and ninja is not just killing, politics, intrigue, and actioin. It's also about family, spirit, love, and sex. If there were ever an issue of Path of the Assassin that could be entitled "the sex issue," this would probably be it. Not just the act of sex, but the feelings, doubts, methods, results, and politics of sex. The results can mean a son or daughter fated to the politics of advantage and danger. The doubts can lead to an unfocused mind. The methods can be a result of doubt, but can be their own distraction as well. The feelings can be good, bad, and ugly. And all of these elements amount to the politics of sex. However, if you fear that all this talk of sex means this volume of Path of the Assassin lacks the the expected swordplay, gushing blood, and drama you've come to love, well please don't worry. Rather the sexplay only provides a framework for those standards, making for an oddly exciting volume of our samurai/ninja tale of conquest. Softcover, 4-in. x 6-in., 304 pages, B&W.

    Volume 10 - 1st printing. "Battle for Power: Part 2!" Written by Kazuo Koike. Art by Goseki Kojima. The fighting clans of pre-Tokugawa Japan are gathering their arms and are on the move. Classic historical warlords, such as Takeda Shingen, Oda Nobunaga, and a young Ieyasu Tokugawa himself take the field in this quasi-historical graphic novel series, Path of the Assassin. This volume of Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima's rich series finds Ieyasu both fighting for his life and looking to the future. First, a couple of eerie and mysterious ninja try to take his life, but find themselves foiled by the increasingly able ninja Hattori Hanzo. And then a nation's tribes face off and spin through intrigue and tactical webworks, all while fascinatingly dark ninja politics weave subtext and sexy action throughout the masterly drafted pages.

Hanzo, the heroic ninja for the future shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, has been in some tight situations before, but nothing like the trap set for him by a ninja from a competing warlord's clan! And to settle this trickery, a sexy battle of wits and weapons. Meanwhile, Tokugawa is moving across the battlefield on his way to Japan's future. Path of the Assassin is a pinnacle in (Lone Wolf and Cub creators) Koike and Kojima's fantastic and seemingly unending stable of awesome samurai manga. And as usual, these works don't wane as they draw toward their final volumes! Softcover, 4-in. x 6-in., 320 pages, B&W.

    Volume 12 - 1st printing. "Three Foot Battle!" Written by Kazuo Koike. Art by Goseki Kojima. The march continues as Japan's future shogun moves to the center of Japan to claim it as his own. But along the way he'll have to deal with intense and complicated politics, strange and sometimes perverted fighting techniques, and a rapidly changing samurai culture in old Japan. And often the history of Japan all rests on the wiles of shogun-to-be Ieyasu's clever and loyal ninja, Hattori Hanzo. Lone Wolf & Cub creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima are experts at weaving an intense and sometimes oddly sensational yarn, and this quasi-historical tale of a young man's rise to the top of samurai politics doesn't pull any punches.

In the politics, struggles, and battles that lead to the birth of a nation, sometimes even good people must die at the hands of allies. And now it's down to only a few warlords of Edo-era Japan. History already tells the story of the victor, but the real guts of Path of the Assassin lie in the characters behind the scenes--the ninja warriors doing the dirty work. Theirs is a story of families and war and intrigue, only far more mysterious and untold. Softcover, 4-in. x 6-in., 304 pages, B&W.

    Volume 14 - 1st printing. "Bad Blood!" Written by Kazuo Koike. Art by Goseki Kojima. Assassins have been cast as the sensual and shadowy villains throughout history, but their exploits have never been so fully realized as they are within the pages of Path of the Assassin. From the most intense sword fight, to a silent poisoning, no job has been too much for the infamous Hattori Hanzo. Now, the stage is set for Tokugawa Ieyasu's destiny to be fulfilled, and with Hanzo watching his back, can anything stop him from uniting Japan? For the past fourteen volumes Hanzo's long walk down the tightrope of political intrigue and human melodrama has been bloody, dramatic, and awe inspiring. Every page filled with the densely researched and poignant delivery you've come to expect from the godfathers of samurai manga. Lone Wolf and Cub creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, experts of gekiga samurai manga, deliver the penultimate volume of Path of the Assassin. Softcover, 4-in. x 6-in., 304 pages, B&W.

Koike and Kojima's tale of how the ninja Hattori Hanzo helped Tokugawa Ieyasu become the shogun who united Japan is in its fifteenth and final volume. All of the action, suspense, political intrigue, and love will come to an end. But before Ieyasu can claim his position, there will be much misery, murder, and tragedy on this already blood-soaked road. The path to the shogunate is a long and arduous journey, made easier by such a vassal as Hattori Hanzo, but in this last volume of Path of the Assassin, Koike and Kojima will tell us just how difficult that journey can be.
