Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
“These bittersweet adventure stories offer entertaining reading, especially for young Asian-Americans who feel excluded from mainstream juvenile literature.”
Stan Lee
“One of the most original, innovative, well-executed comic books anywhere to be found.”
Kevin Church - BeaucoupKevin.com
“I’ve just finished the fourth Usagi Yojimbo trade and the fifth is sitting next to me... If you’re like me, throw away your preconceptions about anthropomorphic comics and get on board. As a fan of samurai fiction (to the point of having a Seven Samurai tattoo) and comics, I can’t recommend Stan Sakai’s beautifully drawn, note-perfect reinvention of the genre highly enough.”
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.”
