Dogs: Prelude

Dogs: Prelude Volume 0 by Shirow Miwa 

R to L (Japanese Style)

Mihai, the "Weepy Old Killer": A former hitman now trying to live a quiet life but haunted by the deaths of his victims and his lover

Badou, the "Gun Smoker": A chain-smoking "information broker" and hired gun whose reckless fa├žade hides a serious intent.

Naoto, the "Blade Maiden": A preternaturally,  skilled swordswoman with a single desire: revenge against the assassin who cut down her family.

Heine, the "Stray Dog": A cipher with a metal collar bolted to his neck, a disturbing talent for mayhem, and a childhood sacrificed to a thing known as "Kerberos."

Driven by their ghosts-both dead and alive-and their desire for truth, all are struggling to solve the secrets of the past while surviving the dangerous present-by gun and sword and courage and luck.
