Usagi Yojimbo: Yokai by Stan Sakai
Usagi Yojimbo: Yokai by Stan Sakai

I'm a massive fan of the Usagi Yojimbo comics, so when I found out that Stan Sakai wrote his first Usagi Yojimbo Graphic Novel, titled Yokai, I pounced upon it. One of the great strengths with "Yokai" is it's a stand alone story and you don't really need any previous information or knowledge of past Usagi Yojimbo stories (UY from now on) to really get into the story.

Usagi Yojimbo Volume 19: Fathers And Sons by Stan Sakai
Fathers and Sons is about the relationship between Miyamoto Usagi (the protagonist) and Jotaro, his secret son. It shows their turmoil because they both know that they are father and son but hide the fact from one another due to their life styles. The first story in this collection is about Usagi finding Jotaro who went missing in book 18 (Travels with Jotaro) and one thing leads to another and they have to help out the Lone Goat and Kid from bounty hunters who want the bounty placed on their heads. There's also a story about Katsuchi-Sensai (one of my favourite characters in the Usagi Yojimbo universe) and his lover that leads to a very sad and quite shocking, conclusion. This book is very… Read more
