Praise for Usagi Yojimbo:
“Writer and artist Stan Sakai brings us a fun shell-shocked adventure featuring the heroes in a half-shell and the rabbit bodyguard that fans of both series are sure to get a kick out of.” —ComicsVerse
“I think Usagi Yojimbo is one of the most original, innovative, well-executed comic books anywhere to be found. Stan’s style of artwork, his crisp incisive writing, and his thoroughly professional pacing, all done in a relaxed and absorbed manner, have provided comics with something so rarely seen in this field—a new literary and artistic approach to illustrated storytelling.” —Stan Lee
“Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo is a genuine treasure, and this issue is no exception. In an ideal world, everyone would read Usagi Yojimbo. This is as good a place as any to start making that happen. Check it out. You’ll be pleased you did.” —Comic Book Resources
“Stan Sakai is able to spin a web of emotions with few words . . . nothing is lost as each sentence has a meaning and purpose towards the larger narrative. The art is equally gorgeously simple . . . a must read for any comic book fan.” —Graphic Policy
