Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fresh from winning the Best Serialized Story 1999 Eisner Award for Grasscutter, Stan Sakai returns with a new Usagi Yojimbo collection featuring six tales of the ronin rabbit's journeys and adventures in feudal Japan. "My Father's Swords" retells an encounter with a young samurai who follows in-and is followed by-the footsteps of his father's warrior heritage. In "The Demon Flute," a village is plagued by a music-playing supernatural killer. Usagi recounts a classic Japanese folk tale in "Momo-Usagi-Taro." Two Tokugawa-era whodunits play out in "The Hair Pin Murders" and Tameshigiri," a pair of Inspector Ishida mysteries. Usagi becomes entangled in a conspiracy to overthrow a lord's throne in "The Courtesan." Memory, mystery, and treachery intermingle to form Grey Shadows.

Synopsis:

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!
