First ever, full color, original Usagi Yojimbo story!

Yokai are the monsters, demons, and spirits of Japanese folklore, such as the shape-changing kitsune, the obakeneko demon cats, and the evil oni ogres. Usagi faces all these and more when a desperate woman begs for his help in finding her kidnapped daughter.

Tracing the abducted girl deep into the forest, Usagi finds it haunted by creatures of Japanese legend and discovers that they are amassing for a great raid on the countryside! Fortunately, Usagi is joined by Sasuke the Demon Queller, who is also fighting to prevent the invasion, but things aren't always as they seem – especially when dealing with the supernatural!

“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.”

•Comics website and blog

“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.”
