    An excellent beginning to a three part story that introduces a criminal who shows himself to be more than just a thief. The art is gorgeous, with strong characters and to-die-for settings. This is a great starting point for those new to the character. Read Full Review

    That aside, Usagi Yojimbo continues its legacy of fun and exciting action with the samurai genre, creating a great read, Usagi is a great character, and this plot is already promising to have some good twists and turns. Its a good story, and it earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Usagi Yojimbo #163 also includes another page of the ongoing Chibi Usagi story. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The start of a fine, if familiar, story about a robin hood type thief framed for murder by a leader of the local mafia-style gang. I thought the art was especially rough and thrown together. It looks like the storyboard and Sakai didn't have enough time to tighten it up before inking.
