This Saturday it looks like I’ll finally have the privilege of meeting Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai, who will be a special guest at the STAPLE! Independent Media Expo in Austin, TX. And what better way to honor Stan, Usagi’s 25th Anniversary and the STAPLE! event then to devote an entire week to everybody’s favorite long-earred ronin, Miyamoto Usagi. I hope to kick things off with a full review of UY #118 “Traitors of the Earth” Part 2 later this evening, and we’ll see what other goodies I can come up with throughout the week, concluding with my impressions Saturday at the media expo.
For fans of the Usagi, just sit back and enjoy, but for those that don’t know much about Stan’s wandering samurai, I invite you to stick around and see if you can find just what it is that has captivated so many imaginations for the last 25 years. As always, your thoughts are welcome here and behind the scenes.
