Lone Wolf, no Cub.


Last night's blog sketch, starring Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima's classic Dark Horse character, Itto Ogami or, The Baby Cart Assassin. Left out Itto's son Daigoro for this pic, but maybe he'll make it in next time. Samurai are just fun to draw. The trick is making them unique enough for the reader to tell apart. Not so difficult in this shot, but in a comic? Yeesh. Much props to Goseki Kojima for that, among many, many other things.

  2. Thanks, Mike. I've always been a big fan. Even the movies, though they can be pulpy and cheesy, are still great.
