These issues form both halves of "Taiko," a special double-issue story line. A group of drought-stricken farmers commission an enormous taiko drum to show their devotion to the gods, and pray for rain. But the bloodthirsty Red Scorpion Gang threatens to destroy the drum unless the farmers pay up, so the farmers must turn to rabbit ronin Usagi to protect the drum, lest they face starvation from drought! When the Red Scorpion Gang burns down the farmers' temple and the drum is in jeopardy, Usagi must figure out how to rescue it and fight the Red Scorpions at the same time, or all is lost!

o Special double-issue story line makes a great introduction to Usagi Yojimbo for new readers!

o Issue #123 of this Eisner Award-winning series was nominated for the 2010 Eisner for Best Single Issue!

    All of which brings us to the final image of the book. Usagi was told that if you throw a kawarake, a shard of pottery, off a cliff and make a wish it may come true. He finds one and so Usagi makes a wish, which we aren't told and the stone shatters on the rocks below. I'm not sure as to the relevance of the shard breaking, but I can hazard a guess quite easily as to what wish Usagi made. I hope it comes true. Usagi deserves some peace. Read Full Review
