Simplicity has long been the hallmark of Sakai’s stories of a wandering rabbit samurai and his various trials throughout a flawlessly researched historical Japan. To help celebrate the comic-book series’ twenty-fifth year comes its first original graphic novel (and, unusually, in full color, too). The tale is a simple one: Usagi follows a tricky fox spirit into a demon-infested wood at the behest of a mother who has lost her child therein. Whereas Sakai’s narrative minimalism is deceptive over the course of the series—small events and intrigues form a much larger tapestry that produces an epic sweep—in this stand-alone tale, the simplicity makes for a story that is essentially one large fight scene. It’s a cool fight scene, to be sure, with the dogged samurai taking on a phantasmagoria of weird spirits and demons lifted from Japanese folklore and meeting up with an ancient demon hunter who holds the key to the story’s somewhat predictable twist. A light read elevated by Sakai’s gorgeous images and masterfully unfussy composition. Grades 4-7. --Jesse Karp

This was my first "pure" Usagi Yojimbo purchase. If you have never read any usagi Yojimbo before, make this your first purchase. You will not be disappointed.
episode of teenage mutant ninja turtles and immediately adored him. Now I can't stop buying every book on miyamoto-San I come across! This one in particular is great.
