Hello and welcome to the Collected Edition – a comic book podcast where we explore celebrated story-arcs from comics and creators throughout the entirety of history.

Today on the program we are discussing Lone Wolf & Cub: The Assassin’s Road, the Dark Horse collected edition of the classic Manga by legendary creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima. It can not be understated the importance and the influence of this comic on the medium of comics, but also on anime, movies, TV and basically the arts in general. Hoping we do it justice.

We also talk about the passing of Kazuo Koike and just how much his work has impacted the comics world.

Also on the program we discuss some of the comics to be announced at Star Wars Celebration that happened in Chicago recently and how Brian did not attend for some reason.

So join us – Paul Matthew Carr and Brian K. Reese – for a lively and rambling and hopefully entertaining discussion on comics and comic related material.
