200 Usagi Yojimbo
Published on Monday, October 17, 2011 by

Dark Horse’s Usagi Yojimbo #141 marks the two hundredth overall issue of master storyteller Stan Sakai’s beloved series, and the rabbit ronin celebrates with a special story, “200 Buddhas”!

With a ruthless gang terrorizing his small town, a humble stonecutter receives a vision and sets out to carve two hundred stone figures. Just as he has finished the 199th, a long-eared stranger comes to his door seeking shelter from the rain!

* A special, self-contained story!

* Perfect for new readers!

Look at the other self-publishing land marks. Spawn 200 has had multiple artists working alongside, and even subbing in for, T. McFarlane. Usagi Yojimbo is all Stan Sakai. Even Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon has had minieries and back up story fill-ins by other writers and artists. Usagi Yojimbo is all Stan Sakai.

Several publishers later and Usagi Yojimbo is still delivering a consistent epic that is as accessible now as it has ever been.

This is the year of the rabbit, a celebration of Usagi. Be sure to check out the retrospective exhibition celebrating the award-winning work of Stan Sakai—including original drawings, paintings, and activities for
the true Usagi Yojimbo fan if you’re in the the LA area.

Stan Sakai has become a legend in the small publisher world. His fearsome rabbit ronin has crossed media and genres yet still holds true to the original vision of the comic.
