Assassination through space and time!

For four decades, Golgo 13 has been the world's greatest assassin for hire—sometimes to settle a private score, and sometimes to change history! His real name and nationality are unknown—but his legend is everywhere. G13 never fails a job, and never sees his clients again—unless they try to betray him!

Gravestone in Sicily

1982: Golgo 13 never misses...until now! A beautiful KGB agent guards his target—yet her secret is not of the heart, but in the mind... Then, in 1978, a young priest finds he cannot forgive a killer when the victim is his own family. Hiring Golgo won't be enough, though—the man of the cloth must assist the assassin in a bizarre scheme to get Golgo's rifle past the watchful eyes of mobsters who trust neither of them! Plus, Even A Monkey Can Draw Manga's Kentaro Takekuma takes on "The Golgo Controversy" in FILE 13!

About the Author

In 1965, Takao Saito was asked to create the authorized manga adaptation of Ian Fleming's original James Bond novels, an experience that prepared him well for Saito's own creation, Golgo 13. A longtime publisher as well as an artist, Saito formed his own production companyin 1960, which by 1974 developed into Leed Co. Ltd, and continues today to put out its own line of manga, books, and contemporary-interest magazines.
