If you saw the last page of the previous issue (and if not, why didn't you?!), you'll know that this just might be the most eagerly anticipated Usagi comic of all time! Prepare yourself for the final, titanic battle to decide the fate of Usagi's world! You will surely cry, but will they be tears of sorrow, of joy . . . or both?

    Stan Sakai has experienced some terrible adversity recently and it's testament to his skill as both a cartoonist and a storyteller that despite this he's delivered what may prove to be his magnus opus. Read Full Review

    Fans of Sakai will love this elseworld tale, even if they secretly feel it could have been so much more. But make no mistake about it: Stan Sakai is still one of the best things to happen to comics. Ever. Read Full Review

    I really loved every minute of this comic. It is such a good read and although wraps up the story in a heartbreaking way, you can't help but love each moment. The fight seen is action packed, as well as, the emotional situations. Sakai gave this everything, and I can appreciate the compelling story that completely unfolds. Read Full Review

    And thankfully we don't have to wait very long as Sakai and Dark Horse return to the current adventures of everyone's favorite rabbit ronin later this year picking up the ongoing series where it left off. Usagi may not live forever, but hopefully we'll get more of his amazing adventures for years and years to come. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Usagi Yojimbo: Senso was gift from Stan Sakai to all of his fans, old and new. He created Senso to remind us what comics are really about. They are stories to entertain the young and young at heart. And he succeeded. Read Full Review

    GWW - Cory Anderson Jan 6, 2015

    There is a "big" drama moment during a particular shocking moment (to me at least) as the secret of Usagi and Jotaro being father and son has been shown and talked about in previous issues (but never with the participating party), and it turns this all-out rock'em sock'em fight into a heartfelt family moment that creates an ancient family heirloom in Usagi's katana and wakizashi (the pair of traditional samurai swords). The end of this arc comes to a close with the signature Stan Sakai/Usagi Yojimbo warm feeling of a great story being told and in the end that is what this was; future space Usagi telling the children of the future space feudal castle the tale of how he got his name and ancestral swords. The only thing I can do now is search for a Usagi Yojimbo Gundam toy. Read Full Review
