I am looking for this graphic novel, and on the cover, the image looked like "Swamp Thing", but it wasn't.
There are horror anthologies within this novel. There was a story about a kitsune (Japanese fox demon); this woman transforms into a fox,and wanders around a lot, but a hoard of Samurai attack her tiny village. The leader of the samurai decapitates her life long friend and protector,asks if the dead man was a friend or a lover,and then takes her hostage.
I can't remember the rest of this story, and I vaguely remember the orders,but there was a great deal of decapitation in most of them, with the exception of a story about a man driving down the road during a rain storm, sees a wolf laying unconscious on the side of the road, so he pulls over and takes the beast home,and nurses it back to health. A friendship is formed, and when this man goes to confront this business rival in his office, he has the wolf by his side as an intimidation tactic, but it backfires, when the businessman summons his own wolf for the impending confrontation.
There are a few more things that I remember about this graphic horror novel. Another story tells of a man going to his woodshed and getting an ax, which he carries into his home and decapitates a woman, that was standing there talking to him.
This book came out in the year 1980 around Spring time. Any help offered in finding out the name of this graphic novel will be appreciated. Thank you in advance! 😀
