Sakamoto Days Vol 1 gn
Taro Sakamoto was once a legendary hit man considered the greatest of all time. Bad guys feared him! Assassins revered him! But then one day he quit, got married, and had a baby. He’s now living the quiet life as the owner of a neighborhood store, but how long can Sakamoto enjoy his days of retirement before his past catches up to him?!
Basically imagine if Dan kept working at Greenlight for another 20 years and then suddenly a hitman tries to take him down and he pulls out some John Wick moves. That is what this book is about, a must have for a new Vol 1 from Viz.
