Are you ready for the new Netflix series based on Stan Sakai’s most famous creation? Let’s take a long, loving look at collecting Usagi Yojimbo comics.
Whether you’re a vintage Usagi Yojimbo fan, or a newer devotee, there is a lot to enjoy in his 35 year publishing history. This video takes us on a deep dive into his earliest appearances at Thoughts & Images, to his solo series at Fantagraphics, to his detour at Mirage, before landing a 25 year gig at Dark Horse. And, of course, his current generation of comics at IDW.
How many of the Usagi Yojimbo comics in my video do you have? Do you have any I missed? While I title this video the “complete” collection, there is always something that slips through the cracks. Tell me about it in the comments.
Don’t forget to check out my monthly comic book hauls on my YouTube and my other furry comic stuff on the site.
Jaa, de wa matta.
