    While Usagi is more of a side character in this story, the focus on Gen makes for an extremely fun read. The rhino has appeared in earlier stories but "The Teacup" finally starts giving readers more insight into the character. Sakai's artwork in combination with Pattinson's colours makes for a cartoonish visual treat that's bound to please fans of the samurai. Meanwhile, the lettering shows more experimentation yet none of it fails to add to the story. Definitely worth reading whether you're a fan of Usagi or just comics in general. Read Full Review

    I was wondering where Gen was at in this series. Coming from knowing Usagi only from the TNNT cartoon back in the 2000's , this was fun to see them partner up again like I remember from my childhood. I wish these books had more blood though ...
