Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“Teenagers will easily succumb to Sakai’s clever brand of visual humor.”
The Los Angeles Times
“Usagi represents a unique fusion of East and West, combining traditional samurai virtues with the flamboyance of Kurosawa’s heroes and the understated authority of a Hollywood frontier marshal.”
Stan Lee
“Usaji Yojimbo is one of the most original, innovative and well-executed comic books anywhere to be found.”
Chris Sims - ComicsAlliance
“I don’t think I’m exaggerating at all when I say that Stan Sakai is arguably the greatest living comic book creator in the world, andUsagi Yojimbois a thirty-year masterpiece that has a consistency and craftsmanship that other comics only touch when they’re at their peak.”
Tim O'Neil - The A.V. Club
“Usagi Yojimbois one of the most acclaimed comics of the last 30 years. It deserves as wide an audience as possible. This is a sturdy set, well constructed and respectfully designed. It’s hard to imagine any comics reader who doesn’t already have these stories would regret having this on their shelf.”
