The enthralling conclusion to "The Hero"! Usagi has been retained as a bodyguard to writer Lady Mura as she escapes her powerful, abusive husband. However, he is cornered in a dilemma when duty and honor conflicts with bushido, the rigid code of the samurai. Can only tragedy come of his decision?

    Usagi Yojimbo #5 offers a sad, but memorable, tale from our rabbit ronin's wanderings. There may have been no happy ending for Mura, but her stories did far outshine her husband's accomplishments. Also worthy of not is a drawing in the historical notes at the end from Stan Sakai's wife, Julie Fujii-Sakai, which is one of the more glorious things I have ever seen in a comic. Must-read.
