Usagi Yojimbo Vol. 1 #23
Stan Sakai’s original series starring the rabbit ronin is available online for the first time as part of Dark Horse’s complete digital presentation of Usagi Yojimbo!
Stopping a group of bandits from stealing an important communiqué, Usagi is introduced to the grateful magistrate it was meant for, and is shocked to see that the man is a legendary general. Now in poor health and wrongfully banished to an unimportant position, and believing that the only honor left to him is a warrior’s death, the general challenges the rabbit ronin to a lethal duel, in “The Way of the Samurai”!
“It’s the quality of Stan’s scripting and artwork that really impresses me the most. In his writing, with an economy of dialogue, he manages to capture subtle and dramatic emotions as well to convey the sense of honor and tradition embodied in the centuries-old code of the Samurai.”
- Stan Sakai
