Nothing But Comics

It’s war of the worlds with samurai. Do I really need to say more? Go buy it. Yesterday. It’s a fantastic six issue series set twenty years in the future of Usagi Yojimbo, a comic about a samurai rabbit who wanders the Japanese countryside. That’s literally all you need to know going in. The main character, Usagi, the bounty hunter Gennosuke, and Usagi’s son, Jotaro, have become high ranking members of the Geishu clan. They’re waging the deciding battle in the war against Lord Hikiji when a giant, mysterious object falls from the sky. From then on, it’s war: samurai versus aliens and it is glorious. Each issue is action packed and chaotic, with fantastic artwork. Stan Sakai is the master of the action sequence and mixing loud battle scenes with quiet character moments. In the twenty years between this series and the main, a lot has obviously happened.
