Stan Sakai’s original series starring the rabbit ronin is available online for the first time as part of Dark Horse’s complete digital presentation of Usagi Yojimbo!
Sakai kicks off his longest epic yet, in part one of “The Dragon Bellow Conspiracy,” a tale of intrigue uniting the rabbit ronin with nearly the entire cast! An ally of the Dark Lord has begun raising an army of mercenaries, and Lady Tomoe learns of a plan to amass enough guns and powder to challenge the Shogun himself. As Tomoe is captured for her discovery, a storm chases Usagi, bounty hunter Gen, and the blind swordspig Zato-Ino from disparate paths toward the conflict!
“Rendered with a grace that verges on the miraculous, Usagi Yojimbo is a delicate echo of a Japan that is vanishing forever.”
