It seems remarkable that a comic series about a samurai rabbit could last four issues, let alone 100.
Not only has Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo reached the 100-issue milestone (over 150 if you factor in previous books with different publishers) but it has become one of the most consistently enjoyable and enduring titles around.
To mark the occasion, Sakai and his rabbit creation are roasted by a who’s who of fellow creators including Sergio Aragones (Groo), Guy Davis (B.P.R.D.), Frank Miller (Sin City), Jeff Smith (Bone) and Matt Wagner (Grendel).
The result is a fun, if mildly disjointed anniversary release that gives a truly deserving creator and series their due.
