  1. Been on a Usagi Yojimbo binge. Goddamn, this is one of my favorite comic series ever, Stan Sakai consistently knows his shit, and he knows restraint, even knowing how to utilize entire pages (or even entire issues) without dialogue. It's violent and there's blood, but the latter is in limited quantities and battles are often swift and decisive. There's a reason why the late Stan Lee spoke so highly of him.

    And just a reminder, Usagi is now being published by IDW alongside Sonic and the TMNT.

      Huh, had no idea IDW picked up Usagi, thought it was still with Dark Horse. I know they did that TMNT crossover recently, though I assumed that was a collaboration like with the Batman crossovers.

      Usagi Yojimbo's been on my "to read" list for a while though; I've always had a passing interest in it because of the connection the series had to TMNT's history and how it's practically been a part of nearly every continuity.

      @Zaysho Yeah, they picked up Usagi early last year. Aside from the normal run, they also plan to remaster the older comics in full color - issue one of "Usagi Yojimbo Color Classics" is gonna be released on the 29th.

      If you want the best value for money at the moment for reading digitally, the entire Fantagraphics run is in a special edition omnibus on sale on Comixology right now (though the entire run is available for free via Comixology Unlimited, apparently, but that's not available outside of the US). After that, you can get almost the entire Dark Horse run in the Usagi Yojimbo Saga set for significantly better value than buying the the regular volumes, though those don't include Vol. 33, "The Hidden", which is available by itself with the regular Dark Horse collected editions. Also, speaking of which, said collected editions include a complete collection of Usagi's crossovers with the TMNT up until 2018.
