Over the years of his warrior pilgrimage, Usagi has faced all manner of bandits, assassins, conspirators, ninja, and monsters, but now he finds himself up against a new threat: zombies!

As Usagi and Sasuke battle to release Kitsune from the enchantment of the wizard Hatakeyama, the power of the netsuke amulet takes effect, and dead warriors from a battle three hundred years past return to life. With the proper incantations they can be controlled; otherwise they are drawn blindly to the amulet and will kill whoever has possession of it -- in this case, Usagi!

    Honestly, "Usagi Yojimbo" is almost hard to review at times because it's near-perfect. Beautiful art, fun stories that capture everything under the sun, what more could you ask for? Well, maybe more wrap-around covers like this latest one. Clearly Sakai had a lot of fun drawing zombies in this story, and it certainly showed. Fun from start to finish, there's a reason why "Usagi Yojimbo" is closing on its 25th anniversary. Check it out. Read Full Review
