Don't you just love a surprise bargain - for my sins I had 'The Goon - Bunch of Old Crap vol.5' pre-ordered on Amazon (I know, I know but I forget to pick stuff up otherwise!) and the dispatch notice came this morning and the price - at some point during the time I've had it ordered - had come down to £6.64 so that's the price there charging me - what a RESULT...

I like the way the company honours lowest price during the pre-order period. But it’s zero for three for me and HC pre-orders of late, and so I’m done with anything remotely limited in nature. The latest Amazon fuck-up was Usagi Saga 9 limited edition. Fortunately, when initial distribution issues surrounding that volume became clear, I made a ‘panic’ second pre-order a while back with Speedyhen, who did deliver. And, yes, Amazon cannot control distribution, but its sheer size means it should have buying power and secure orders if you pre-order on day one. That it doesn’t showcases a preference for ‘agility’ and ‘just in time’ over people actually getting the books they ordered.

Lone Wolf and Cub Humble Bundle - its quite the fantastic deal and contains a LOT of other stuff (which I don't know I should say - including Crying Freeman which I've never read but heard good things about.

Worth checking out

Oh wow! I've been waiting a long time and none of this stuff - Lone Wolf & Cub, Shogun Executioner - is ever in the Dark Horse sales on Comixology so this is a must.

I got a the first few issues of Crying Freeman when Epic [citation needed] started printing it in the early 90s (around the time Akira was blowing up.) Don't remember it being much beyond stylish hitman stuff but happy to revisit.
We never really die.

Awesome I've been after the Lady Snowblood books for a while but they're always stupid expensive on ebay and the like, same with Path of the Assassin. I've got full sets of Lone Wolf and Cub and Samurai Executioner on the book shelf (both of which are fantastic). Even taking the double dip into account that this still looks like a bargin (especially as a digital double dip doesn't eat up shelf space). Was never that into Crying Freeman but willing to give it another go.

Is Samurai Executioner any good? I'm guessing so.

There's not the long narrative arc that Lone Wolf has, it's a series of stories featuring the same central character. There are a few repeat characters but generally each tale is a self contained story about a criminal and how they came to be executed by Yamada Asaemon. Some of the stories can be a bit grim/depressing at times but they're beautifully drawn and there's clearly a lot of research gone into the setting and characters. I'm actually looking forward to seeing the art on a bigger screen as the volumes I have from dark horse are all quite small (10*15).
