    Both the snow swept vistas of Japan and monster-infused action alike are wonderfully presented in a single issue that shows a masterful storyteller really can do it all in this succinct issue. Read Full Review

    Usagi's pilgrimage back to the spot of his greatest defeat, in hopes of discovering some sign to allow him to free himself from his vows to the fallen Mifune, instead leads to an encounter with a goblin in the woods with ties to both Usagi and Mifune and the tragedy that changed the samurai's life forever. The events of the issue restate the character core belief structure and, is so often the case, ends with the rabbit ronin hitting the open road once more. Must-read. Read Full Review
