Usagi Yojimbo: Bunraku and Other Stories
Presented in color for the first time, the ongoing adventures of Stan Sakai's seminal and long running series are now being published by IDW. This first volume of all-new material continues the saga of Usagi Yojimbo with the three-part "Bunraku," as Usagi becomes embroiled in a puppet drama where the players are not quite what they seem! Will the aid of a supernatural ally be enough for Usagi to prevent more death? Then, Usagi goes back to his roots as a yojimbo (bodyguard) when he is hired by Lady Mura, a famous writer, to keep her safe on her perilous journey to her father's home.
Plus, a 35th anniversary special where Stan Sakai revisits the very first Usagi story, "The Goblin of Adachigahara", expanding it from 8 to 24 pages and adding new insights into the characters and events, as well as revealing the reason for Usagi's pilgrimage back home. In the final story, Usagi joins his friend the bounty hunter, Gen, and his partner, Stray Dog, in recovering a stolen sword, an heirloom of the Higashi Clan.
Collects the first seven issues of the new Usagi Yojimbo series published by IDW and features an Introduction by Matt Alt, co-author of Yokai Attack! The Japanese Monster Survival Guide.
