Eisner-award nominated creator Takehiko Inoue’s critically acclaimed take on the life of Miyamoto Mushashi. Transcends the potential of what manga can be.
Striving for enlightenment by way of the sword, Miyamoto Musashi is prepared to cut down anyone who stands in his way. Vagabond is an action-packed portrayal of the life and times of the quintessential warrior-philosopher--the most celebrated samurai of all time!
Musashi’s battle with the forces of nature leads him to do something that would have been unthinkable for him in the past—he begs for help. In exchange for sustenance for a famine-ravaged village, Musashi promises to fill a position as a sword instructor in Kokura. But Musashi is reluctant to leave the village, and something still ties him to the land there.
