"These bittersweet adventure stories offer entertaining reading, especially for young Asian-Americans who feel excluded from mainstream juvenile literature." — Los Angeles Times
"I don't think I'm exaggerating at all when I say that Stan Sakai is arguably the greatest living comic book creator in the world, and Usagi Yojimbo is a thirty-year masterpiece that has a consistency and craftsmanship that other comics only touch when they're at their peak." — Chris Sims - ComicsAlliance
"One of the most original, innovative, well-executed comic books anywhere to be found." — Stan Lee
"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 - BeaucoupKevin.com
