About the Author
Stan Sakai was born in Kyoto, Japan, grew up in Hawaii, and now lives in California with his wife, Sharon, and children, Hannah and Matthew. He received a Fine Arts degree from the University of Hawaii, and did further studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His creation, Usagi Yojimbo, is the story of a samurai rabbit living in a feudal Japan populated by anthropomorphic animals. It first appeared in Albedo Comics in 1984. Since then, Usagi has been on television as a guest of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and as toys, on clothing, in comic books, and in a series of trade paperback collections. In 1991, Stan created "Space Usagi," the adventures of a descendant of the original Usagi, dealing with the samurai in a futuristic setting. Stan is also an award-winning letterer for his work on Sergio Aragonés' Groo the Wanderer, the Spider-Man Sunday newspaper strips as well as Usagi Yojimbo. He is the recipient of a Parents' Choice Award, an Inkpot Award, multiple Eisner Awards, two Spanish Haxturs, an American Library Association Award, and a National Cartoonists' Society Division Award. Usagi Yojimbo Book 12: Grasscutter was used as a textbook in Japanese history classes at the University of Portland. There are over twenty volumes of his collected works in print. The author lives in Los Angeles, CA..

If you were wanting to try out the series or give a friend something different to try, I would recommend this volume.
It also does a good job breaking some of its own tropes. I recently reread the whole series again over the past year, gearing up for book 29 and issue #145 It only gets better with each read.
I only have one minor complaint. Usagi meets the Lord of the Owls again and behaves in a very uncharacteristic way. I look forward to more about this enigmatic character, but I hope Usagi is more himself when it happens.
