The rabbit ronin faces a terrifying creature from Japanese mythology in this creepy, self-contained story! Nukekubi are supernatural monsters that take the form of normal humans during the day, but at night can detach their heads to attack their unsuspecting prey. Invited to take refuge in an isolated mountain hut, Usagi doesn't notice anything suspicious about the house until he is awakened late at night by strange noises and a feeling of danger. Immediately, he sees the screaming head of his host -- with sharpened cannibal teeth -- flying down from the rafters!

A self-contained tale of supernatural horror!

    The end of the issue is a little too cutesy and obvious, but the storytelling to that point is fantastic. If, like me, you haven't yet picked up an issue of "Usagi Yojimbo," #126 is a great way to come to the book and sample Stan Sakai's fantastic art and storytelling skills. Read Full Review

    This particular issue was enjoyable but a bit on the light side. However I know Usagi has had more epic adventures in the past that I might find more satisfying. The most rewarding part of picking up the book was venturing into unknown territory and cleansing my palette of the myriad of superhero titles I have become so familiar with. So if you have a title you've been putting off for awhile, give it a try. Chances are you'll enjoy it. Read Full Review
