(W) Shin'ichi Sakamoto (A) Shin'ichi Sakamoto
Unflinching poise in the face of mortal justice-a world free of execution will be sought at the cost of further death. In this omnibus edition collecting volumes 4-6 of the original manga series, Shin'ichi Sakamoto masterfully fictionalizes the true life of Charles-Henri Sanson, the "Gentleman of Paris," who performed nearly three thousand executions in 18th century France. What has begun, must be seen to an end. Despite the sorrows of a broken heart, Charles must carry out the execution of the condemned Damiens. Swearing to fulfill his duty mercifully, fate plays a cruel hand, and within the ranks of the Sanson family, one intervenes in a shocking display. With dreams of a future of mercy and flourishing equality, Charles faces the execution of the century.
