In Roguetown things are getting hot and heated as Sanji and Carmen heat it up in an outdoor cooking duel, Luffy meets and old enemy with an all new look, and the nasty navy chases after Luffy to make it a race to the boats for the Straw Hats gang. And that’s just the beginning of the trouble waiting for them in this volume of One Piece!

Chasing the path to the One Piece, the crew need the Grand Compass for Nami to navigate the Grand Line, but deadly currents, the imminent danger of getting smashed on rocks, and having to sail up a mountain top make this trip seem impossible. Peril’s everywhere and this isn’t even the most challenging part the Straw Hats have to face!

The crazy crew makes it through to arrive at Misty Peak. It’s like an island paradise the people are so nice. But if you’ve watched even one volume before of One Piece, you know there’s always more than meets the eye to pretty much everyone Luffy and the rest meet. It’s too bad Luffy doesn’t watch his own anime though, because he and the rest of his crew walk smack into the trap laid by the bounty hunters. And their not just any bounty hunters, they’re Baroque Works – the baddest baddies of the bunch! Zolo’s the only one hip to their trip and now Zolo’s going solo for some kick butt action to try to save his shipmates.

But wait a minute! Not even all of the Baroque hunters are who they claim to be! Man, you can get loopy just trying to keep up with all this! Next thing you know, Zolo is roped into saving a princess and now maybe the Straw Hats will help save a kingdom. But first Zolo has to fight …Luffy!! That’s right, no one gave Luffy the low down on the islanders and now it’s a showdown between these buddies, one where no punch will be pulled, no quarter given! It’s an all out brawl between the would-be king of the pirates and the deadliest swordsman! It’s action, action everywhere!

EXTRAS:
Bonus features include a production art gallery, previews of One Piece art book and video game, and previews of Shonen Jump video title and magazine.

IN SUMMARY:
Crazy twists, perils everywhere, hidden identities, and a showdown between Luffy and Zolo, it’s all here in the latest volume of One Piece! Go pirates go!
