    Frank Miller Lone Wolf and Cub #3 Cover Original Art (First, 1987). The original manga Kozure Okami [Wolf taking along his child] by Kazuo Koike (writer) and Goseki Kojima (artist) had a huge impact on Frank Miller. It's extremely easy to see in his DC mini-series Ronin. So when First Comics decided to translate and reprint the original manga, it was a natural step to tap Frank Miller for all-new cover art. This devastating scene was created from a composite of separate illustration pieces. The top of the building and the victim and his minions are all on separate pieces of paper affixed to a larger piece with the main character Ogami Itto on it. All are created in ink on paper with a combined image area of 13" x 20.5". The entire piece is affixed to a 23.25" x 29.75" illustration board. The art is signed in the lower section of the image area. There are some minor ripples in the section affixed in the lower part. Overall in Excellent condition.
