• Usagi Yojimbo #3-#4 Bundle

  • 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 the 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!

    Classic Usagi Yojimbo #4 is the final collection of early Usagi short stories, including one pre-Usagi Yojimbo #1 tale and two from early in the series’ run. Gen returns in “Bounty Hunter II,” a story from Critters #14 cementing the friendship between rabbit and rhino; Usagi navigates a haunted forest in “The Tangled Skein” from Critters #38; and a fancy hairpin is the key to a ghostly mystery, in “Yurei” from Critters #50!

    This collection of essential stories is the best introduction available to Stan Sakai’s enduring masterpiece!
