9781593072797: Samurai Executioner, Vol. 10 (v. 10)

It's the final volume of Samurai Executioner and, like the previous nine volumes, the last is a combination of life's varying tides of good fortune and ill circumstance.

The woman who once stole the weapons of samurai cops is becoming a cop herself. It's a story of gender struggles in a time long past. All the while criminals keep losing their heads to Asa the decapitator. But one criminal might leave something behind that could hurt our favorite protagonist.

From Booklist:

The last six Samurai Executioner stories share with their 48 predecessors the excellence of Koike's canny scripting and of Kojima's art with its resemblances to the historical films of Akira Kurosawa and Kenji Mizoguchi. None of the six is as intense as the diptych of "The Bamboo Splitter" and "Toothless Yoshichi" in The Bamboo Splitter (2005), or the extraordinarily gritty "Life Link" in Ten Fingers, One Life (2005), but the two featuring a young policeman and his ex-offender wife, series regulars since debuting in Shinko the Kappa (2005), bring erotic jollity into a milieu in which sex is elsewhere harsh and violent. As before, the mysteries raised in the shorter stories focused on single executions are resolved by swordsman Asaemon's quest to understand those he executes; the poignant "The Chrysanthemum Head" is one of the finest such pieces in the entire series. The concluding story, "Cough," sounds once more the series' persistent theme of common humanity by tracing a cold from condemned to prison guards to policemen to even the executioner. Ray Olson
