How can you not be intrigued by Usagi Yojimbo? The next issue will be released on March 31. Dark Horse was kind enough to share an exclusive preview with us. I haven't been reading since the beginning but this is some good stuff. Stan Sakai manages to deliver great stories with a 'cute' character that isn't watered down for the young readers. If you haven't read Usagi Yojimbo before, you definitely should pick up an issue.

The rabbit ronin joins a disgraced samurai on a tragic mission in this brand-new standalone tale! Since the kidnapping of Lord Masaki's son, clan retainer Inuyoshi has a tarnished reputation. The ransom was paid and the victim returned, but it was Inuyoshi's responsibility to protect Lord Masaki's son. Ordered to commit seppuku-ritualized suicide-to atone for his negligence, Inuyoshi has vowed to first recover the ransom, the Sword of Narukami. Usagi chooses to help Inuyoshi on his mission, but develops reservations, as success will mean death for Inuyoshi!

 








Check out that second page! Someone gets their head chopped off!

@Yung ANcient One: We just have to spread the word. That's why when Dark Horse asked if we wanted an exclusive preview for this, I jumped at it. I also reviewed last week's issue.
