    TRIGUN MAXIMUM VOLUME 9 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Yasuhiro Nightow
    Pencils: Yasuhiro Nightow
    Cover: Yasuhiro Nightow

    This is the story of Nicholas Wolfwood and Livio, two boys for whom friendship was brief, but still burned deep into their boyhood consciences. Those bits and pieces, though full of light, are mere shadows to these men of guns and blood and violence.

    Yes, in this volume of Trigun, our hero Vash takes a bit of a rest, and he certainly deserves one. So, now we'll study a boyhood relationship, one that, in this very volume, just might come to a destructive and angry end. Though, it may be a bit tough for either one of these "friends"to knock each other off. They both have secrets up their sleeves, and Livio, well he might even have an extra sleeve!

    As always, published in the ever-popular non-westernized format, with Yasuhiro Nightow's commentary in the back and the comical original black-and-white covers printed on the inside.
