Synopses & Reviews
Unimaginable future technology alongside an ancient samurai code. A universe populated with bizarre lifeforms divided into warring clans. Space Usagi is the descendent of the 17th-century samurai, Miyamoto Usagi, and is the hero of his clan. Space Usagi collects all three miniseries previously published by Dark Horse and Mirage. Death and Honor tells of the fall of the Shiroshi star sytem, White Star Rising chronicles a band of samurai as they attempt to retake their system, and Warrior has Usagi on the trail of the abductor of his lord. Also featured are two short stories, including an encounter with the original Usagi Yojimbo.
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!
