    "Usagi Yojimbo Color Special: The Artist" is a perfect comic. It has humor, it has drama, it has sadness, it has joy. It's beautifully drawn, it's approachable from multiple angles, and it rewards both long-time readers and first-time visitors. The comics industry would be poorer without Sakai and "Usagi Yojimbo." It doesn't get much better than this. Read Full Review

    Sakai has built an amazing body of work here, and there's plenty of time to get on board - each storyline stands on its own - as his iconic tales of a samurai searching for his place in the world continues. Highly recommended! Read Full Review

    "Usagi Yojimo" is an enduring work of comic fiction and a mark of high quality for the industry. With Stan Sakai's name comes a tradition of cartooning excellence that you can expect just about every time. There are few bets on the stands are sure as a Sakai comic, and "The Artist" color special is no different. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Stanley Stu-Brick Jul 8, 2014

    It was the fourth story, The Artist that we see his skill and resolve being tested and met, all the while being measured by his contemporaries. It is a lovely comic to look at way before you start to read it. Get lost in a different time and place, spend time in an ancient culture. Read Full Review
