Usagi Yojimbo: The Brink of Life & Deathby Stan Sakai
Synopses & Reviews
The rabbit ronin's third Dark Horse volume in a brand new second edition! While journeying over mountains, into valleys, through towns and farmlands, and along rugged coasts searching for harmony, Usagi faces a unique cast of characters: a village of seaweed farmers, an innocent noodle peddler, a demon-possessed woman, a relentless clan of bat ninja, an assassins' guild, a mysterious medicine peddler, and Inazuma, a secretive female samurai. More than once Usagi finds himself in great danger - but it's all in a day's work when you walk the thin line on the brink of life and death.
The tale of Usagi Yojimbo is a masterful adaptation of samurai legend to sequential art, and a parable of 16th century Japan told with characters that are all anthropomorphized animals. Young or old, male or female, if you enjoy stories of high adventure and high honor, you will thrill at the saga of Usagi Yojimbo!
A perennial bestseller for 20 years, with each volume in multiple printings, we are pleased to have all seven volumes of the all-ages classic Usagi Yojimbo now available with the recent reprints of Vols. 1 and 2. A cross between Disney and Akira Kurosawa movies, with a lot of Lone Wolf& Cub thrown in, Usagi is the story of a wandering rabbit warrior in feudal Japan. A family favorite for 20 years.
Join Usagi Yojimbo in his hare-raising adventures of life and death. Watch as he faces assassins, medicine peddlers, bat ninjas, and more! This is a story of honor and adventure. It's a masterful adaptation of samurai legend to sequential art. Dark Horse is proud to present this epic story of good versus evil. Sakai's unique blend of storytelling and Japanese legend has made a unique niche for itself.
