An epic Wild West manga depicted by multi-Eisner Award nominee Jiro Taniguchi

Two defeated samurai are exiled from Japan during the Boshin War of 1868 as the new Meiji government took hold. Ending up in Crow Territory in North America, they encounter Crazy Horse, chief of the Oglalas, and soon form a profound friendship and respect for each other's cultures. This respect was felt so deeply that the two Japanese travelers end up fighting alongside the Oglalas at the infamous encounter at Little Bighorn.


"Taniguchi's careful compositions [...] achieve a contemplative beauty." —Andrew D. Arnold, "Everest is what showbiz types call a 'multi-hyphenated': a big, profitable rock with crossover appeal on bookstore shelves, Imax screens and TiVo queues. Add graphic novels to that list." —Brian Kevin, Outside
