Whoa, wait! What’s going on? Sad Genchu in the snow? This is not where last we left him! Also, I’m rather excited for this scene, it’ll be kind of awesome, I think! Exclamation point!

    Those are the most endangered wolves I’ve ever seen.

    • yeah

      those are the most endangered wolves i’ve ever seen.

      • suburban_samurai

        Genchu – Two against one? Doesn’t seem very fair. You sure you don’t want to call in more of your pals?

        • Lenvoran

          I’d challenge you to a duel, but there’s not enough of you.

    • Madison Link

      I’m thinking those are Ryoshi’s dogs, not wolves. We may be about to learn why Ryoshi has “retired” from the Demons of Sorrow.

      • Neska

        Yeah, I went back and looked and there’s a curled shiba inu tail visible in the last panel: Ryoushi’s hunting dogs.

  • Lady Courage

    I half expected him to GRRRRRWLLLL back. Looking forward to this scene!

  • IDPounder

    Cho: “…and THAT’S why the price of wolf pelts in Japan is so low.”

    • suburban_samurai

      Once they’re all extinct at Genchu’s blade, the price will skyrocket.

  • Mike

    Was it winter in the last panels? Did I miss something here?

    • suburban_samurai

      You missed nothing, sir! All will be explained very soon-ish.

  • charles81

    I’m thinking far back prequel.

    He lacks the scar and even looks much younger. So maybe how he ended up a member of two clans.

    • suburban_samurai


      • charles81

        Of course… we would still be left wondering how he ended up with that awesome set of swords if he’s presently little more than a wondering Ronin.

  • John Smith

    Audible sharpness FTW! 😀

    • suburban_samurai

      Swords don’t naturally make SHING noises when you unsheathe them??? Movies have been lying to me for decades!!!!

      • KungFuKlobber

        No, my childhood! Next we’ll find out that control panels don’t emit showers of sparks when you shoot them, or that elevators don’t close when someone’s blocking the door, or that people who fall to their deaths make some sound other than the Wilhelm scream!

  • Sunwu

    Genchu was raised by wolves this is a famliy reunion

    • suburban_samurai

      I find your reasoning sound. Genchu’s got a feral streak to him, after all!

      • Sunwu

        Yep raised by Portuguese speaking wolves

  • Johannes Hjortshøj

    Wandering Ronin in the snow… You sir understand badass.

    • suburban_samurai

      I’m gonna take that compliment and run with it. Joe and I have been thinking about this scene for quite some time.

      • Johannes Hjortshøj

        It was indeed a compliment. I love scenes like this :)

  • Jake

    Is this one of those dream sequences that end abruptly with Genchu waking up, grunts and then goes looking for the morning tea blend?

  • Hfar

    It ain’t a comic about samurai until you have a grizzled swordsman wandering through the snow in a straw hat and cloak. I think that’s article 55 subsection B of the Jidaigeki Codex.

  • Kid Chaos

    There was a bonus rewrite of this page, but now I can’t find it. A little help, please?

  • Speedy Marsh

    Wait… Did Genchu used to work for the hot dog vendor?

  • SotiCoto

    Doge squad!

  • ExPaladin

    Ah, good. Skyrim wolves. He’ll be eating wolf haunches today.

  • MoveAlongCitizen

    Once upon a time, Japan had wolves.
    Genchu: “Not if I have anything to say about it.”
    Japan no longer has wolves.

  • 627235

    Is it just me or is he a bit lightly dressed against the weather?
