222 pp, 8vo, soft cover. Created, Written and Illustrated by Stan Sakai. "At the close of violent, 16th -century Japan, Miyamoto Usagi braved many a battle only to lose his lord and become a masterless samurai, or ronin. While many ronin became bandits or mercenaries, Usagi chose the warrior pilgrimage, travelling the land in search of enlightenment and justice. From struggles against the dark ambitions of evil men to clashes with supernatural beasts, Usagi's journeys lead him to encounters and perils of every description: a graveyard confrontation with inhuman creatures, a young adventure-lover with a naive appetite for violence, a poor village terrorized by a savage Spider Woman...Award-winning creator Stan Sakai has crafted an all-ages adventure of Japan's history, culture, and mythology. Few works of graphic fiction offer - or deliver - as much action, depth, and sheer fun as Stan Sakai's 'Usagi Yojimbo'." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Ext erior - very minor edge wear, spine flat and uncreased. NF
