    The mystery goes in deadly directions, ending with a sinister reveal. The characters are some of the best written characters in the industry, with the artwork always staggeringly detailed. This is a constant hallmark of excellence in comics. The only mystery is why you're not reading this. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    As a new reader to Usagi Yojimbo, I am impressed with the amount of information Sakai gives in each issue while still telling a well-paced story.  Part history lesson, part detective story, part action movie, this book has a lot going for it.  It's no wonder that Usagi Yojimbo has lasted so long and has droves of fans.  After reading this issue and the last, you can add at least one more fan to that list!

    As an individual installment it lays necessary groundwork with excellent cartooning, which might leave some wanting more, but it's still superior to most of what can be found on a monthly basis. Read Full Review

    As expected, the story picked up quickly in issue #2, after a lot of introductory stuff in #1. Read Full Review

    So far the only answers Usagi and Ishida have uncovered have led to larger questions. Just what was the true motive for the crime, and what help can the local thief offer in solving it? Worth a look. Read Full Review
