The earliest adventures of Miyamoto Usagi, Stan Sakai’s celebrated rabbit ronin, are available online for the first time as part of Dark Horse’s complete digital presentation of Usagi Yojimbo!
In this third collection of pre-Usagi Yojimbo #1 tales, the tragic Zato Ino makes his first appearance, in “Blind Swords-Pig” from Critters #7; and Usagi visits the village of his birth for the first time since becoming a ronin, in “Homecoming” from Critters #10–#11. In this poignant tale, Usagi must defend the town from a clan of ninja alongside the love of his younger days—and her husband, the town magistrate!
This collection of essential stories is the best introduction available to Stan Sakai’s enduring masterpiece!
