Usagi Yojimbo: Book 1
By

Rating
Miyamoto Usagi is no Bugs Bunny. He's a rabbit bodyguard, a samurai who wanders the mountains, plains and villages of a 17th-century Japan populated almost exclusively by anthropomorphic animals. Cats, snakes, rhinos and ninja moles plot and fight their way across a land ravaged by civil war. The 10 stories in this first collection introduce Usagi, the evil Lord Hikiji and a host of other characters. The stories themselves can stand alone, but taken together they form an ongoing saga of treachery and revenge.

Reviews

While I enjoyed Sakai's artwork in the first volume, this second trade collection is even stronger. ... Usagi Yojimbo is a great addition to the canon of samurai stories, and is definitely highly recommended for anyone who is a fan of wandering ronin or just good storytelling. --Rob McMonigal" As a fan of samurai fiction (to the point of having a Seven Samurai tattoo) and comics, I can t recommend Stan Sakai s beautifully drawn, note-perfect reinvention of the genre highly enough. --Kevin Church" Fans of comics set in historical Japan should definitely check this out. You'll be glad you did. I think it would also be a good fit for manga fans looking to try a non-Japanese comic. I enjoyed this book a lot, and look forward to reading more. " These bittersweet adventure stories offer entertaining reading, especially for young Asian-Americans who feel excluded from mainstream juvenile literature. One of the most original, innovative, well-executed comic books anywhere to be found.--Stan Lee
