Usagi Yojimbo: Grasscutter Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Miyamoto Usagi may be the world's greatest "masterless" samurai. With his sword by his side, Usagi travels the countryside of Japan at the turn of the 17th century. In a time of political unrest and instability, Usagi Yojimbo (Rabbit Bodyguard) fights corruption and evil to uphold the warrior's code of honor known as Bushido. Eisner-Award winning illustrator Stan Sakai brings the ronin's adventures to life here in the first calendar created from the eponymous comic book series. The tale of Usagi Yojimbo is a masterful adaptation of samurai legend to sequential art, told with characters who 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! Notes: Usagi Yojimbo has won hearts worldwide through his best-selling comic book series, which have been a staple at comic book stores for over 10 years and translated into eight different languages. The Usagi Yojimbo comics have been praised for teaching facts and fiction about Japanese traditions and language in a fun and inventive way. Artist Stan Sakai has been nominated for the prestigious Eisner Award fifteen times and has won the award three times!

Synopsis:

Forged in heaven, it is called Kusanagi, the Grasscutter--the lost sword of the Gods. This legendary blade could potentially tip the scales of power for the shadowy Conspiracy of Eight in their quest to overthrow the Shogunate and reinstate the Emperor. With the help of a witch and the souls of dead warriors, they plan to recover the lost sword and bring the Shogun down. But when the fates place the Grasscutter in the hands of masterless samurai Usagi Yojimbo, the ronin rabbit becomes the focus of a deadly struggle for possession of the dread blade. And this crisis pales beside the dark possibilities should the sword come to the demonic warrior, Jei! Grasscutter collects Dark Horse Usagi Yojimbo issues 13-22, Stan Sakai's longest and most ambitious Usagi tale to date: a sweeping epic showcasing one of comics' most individual artistic voices at the peak of his creative skills.
