On sale September 24, b&w, 24pg
Two of the best-loved guest characters in Stan Sakai's multiple award-winning samurai saga return for starring roles in the two-issue adventure, "Fathers and Sons." In this first part, Lone Goat and Kid (Sakai's homage to the seminal manga Lone Wolf and Cub
) are in one of their toughest predicaments ever-the Lone Goat lies near death with an arrow wound in his back, while young Gorogoro saves a near lifeless Jotaro from drowning. A local gang boss, after the reward for the Lone Goat, sends his men to slay them all, leaving it up to the two children to stand alone against the gang of killers. Meanwhile, Usagi is desperately scouring the riverbanks for any signs of his son when he meets up with troubles of his own! Winner of he 2002 National Cartoonist Society Award in the Comic Book Divison.
