    While Usagi Yojimbo #26 primarily plays as prologue"presaging the return of Usagi's most lethal foe"it delivers an impressive mix of scenes both bombastic and subtle in a short tale bound to have ramifications for years to come. Read Full Review

    We do get a longer segment between Yukichi and Jei which teases a confrontation that never arrives. However, Jei does manage to deal with the one samurai who manages to escape Usagi's wrath. As for a confrontation between Usagi and Jei, we don't get one here (which I'll admit to being a bit disappointed), although the rabbit ronin is shocked to learn what held up his cousin from arriving earlier with his aid.
