“If you haven’t seen this ultra-cool series, you must! It involves a rabbit samurai – yes, a rabbit samurai – that young readers will love for the action and sophisticated art. I adore it for those reasons too, but there’s more substance to it than you might expect. A good Zen comic is hard to find, and this one is nearly perfect.” –
USA Today Pop Candy

“For over [three decades], Sakai has been writing and drawing the continuing adventures of Usagi Yojimbo, a plucky rabbit samurai in 17th century Japan. Sakai’s balance of humor, action, suspense, and even pathos suggests a collision between Walt Disney and Akira Kurosawa; drawn in a lively cartoon style equally inspired by the world of comics and that of film (with more than a hint of classic Japanese print art),
Usagi combines a classic simplicity with a gentle, but thoroughly modern wit.” – The Comics Journal

“It's been a pleasure to read Stan Sakai's "Usagi Yojimbo" over the years, watching the characters grow and age slowly as the saga unfolds … excellent.”

“Usagi Yojimbo [has] been one of the best comics on the stands for over 30 years. It’s both fantastic and consistent to the point where I can’t think of a bad issue.”

IGN

•Videogame review site

“This rabbity ronin travels the historic Edo period of Japan and battles other anthropomorphic animal warriors. Despite his charming looks, Usagi is a serious hero whose adventures pay homage to classic samurai films … And after all these years, Usagi Yojimbo remains as enjoyable as ever.”
