Usagi Yojimbo Book One: The Ronin
By Stan Sakai.
The classic original Usagi stories from Albedo, Critters, Doomsday Squad, and the Usagi Yojimbo Summer Special are contained in this first anthology.
The setting is 17th century Japan, when the age of civil wars has barely ended and the Shogun has established power. The samurai is the ruling class throughout the land, following a warrior’s code of honor known as Bushido.
Stan Sakai chronicles this time of settling unrest and political intrigue through the story of a wandering and masterless samurai named Miyamoto Usagi, aka Usagi Yojimbo!
