Overview

Throughout his journeys across feudal Japan, rabbit ronin Usagi has faced many dangers, crossed paths with some who have become his sworn enemies, and forged bonds of friendship stronger than any threat that might cross his path. Collected here are six tales featuring those companions Usagi holds dear. "Showdown" finds Usagi traveling with master swordsman Gen, as the two disrupt the dueling influences of a pair of corrupt families. Neko ninja clan leader Chizu finds herself betrayed and on the run in "Escape!" In "Three Seasons," Usagi is forced to defend himself with the most unlikely of weapons. The beautiful thief Kitsune's tragic history is revealed in "The Shrouded Moon" and "Kitsune's Tale." And in "Lesson in Courtesy," a hot-headed young Usagi incurs a debt that takes nearly a lifetime to repay! Once again, Stan Sakai masterfully weaves together the many threads of intrigue, adventure, humor, and heart in another endearing Usagi Yojimbo collection.

    Mac Raboy in his prime

    Dark Horse did a great job and a great service to Flash Gordon and Mac Raboy fans when this collection was published. Previously, the only access one had to this material was from old Sunday comic newspaper clippings. While those are great, and while these books can't really replace the fun of those original items, the books fill a huge hole. The only thing that they really don't communicate is the beauty of these comics in full color - something that would have been cost prohibitive, I know, but it's still true. The color on these pages in the late 1940's and early 1950's was just gorgeous. The line work is detailed, precise, and very pretty indeed. The stories are silly and almost nonexistent. After showing up on Mongo for a few weeks, Flash & company rocket off to other worlds - and for YEARS at a time, there is little mention of Ming and the other standard cast of characters. We slowly see Flash transform from a science fantasy hero into a standard 1950's spaceman who spends most of his time planet-hopping. While this is somewhat disappointing, Raboy rallies with some incredible artwork. As time goes on his people tend to look vaguely reptilian, and Flash himself grows a pretty good set of ears, but overall the good far outweighs any shortcomings. The covers don't convey the beauty of the art inside, which is too bad, but I can live with that. The introductions in the books dwell more on Flash Gordon creator Alex Raymond than the artist we're dealing with here - Mac Raboy. Roy Thomas' Alter Ego magazine has published extensive articles about Raboy, his family, and his talented background man Bob Rogers, so it's not as if there's a dearth of information about him or the strip. Overall, though, for the Raboy fan, this series is well worth every penny.
