Usagi Yojimbo

Usagi Yojimbo chronicles the action-packed wanderings of a masterless samurai (a “ronin”) in feudal Japan — as told with funny-animals. (If Pixar and the late Akira Kurosawa were to collaborate on a movie, it might very well look like this.) With iconic characters, gorgeously rendered settings, and exquisite plotting, this series is a treat for all ages.

"If you haven't seen this ultra-cool series, you must! It involves a rabbit samurai —— yes, a rabbit samurai —— that young readers will love for the action and sophisticated art. I adore it for those reasons, too, but there's more substance to it than you might expect. A good Zen comic is hard to find, and this one is nearly perfect." –— USA Today

"One of the most original, innovative, well-executed comic books anywhere to be found." — Stan Lee
