This is volume 6 of the Lone Wolf and Cub manga, and it’s called “Lanterns for the Dead”.
The legend of Lone Wolf and Cub continues to grow in this latest chapter of Koike and Kojima’s epic samurai masterpiece chronicling the wanderings of Japan’s deadliest assassin, Itto Ogami, and his infant son, Daigoro.
