    Usagi Yojimbo Book 7 collects Usagi Yojimbo #117-#138 plus "One Dark and Stormy Night" and "Cut the Plum." In this volume, Stan Sakai sends Miyamoto Usagi on a collision course with bandits, zombies, monsters, and the usual fare. Old favorites like Kato, Sasuke, and Kitsune make appearances. There are big battles, encounters with monsters from Japanese folklore, and touching moments. Honestly, I'm running out of ways to say this is the best comic around.

There are big battles, encounters with monsters from Japanese folklore, and touching moments. Honestly, I'm running out of ways to say this is the best comic around. Stan Sakai's minimalist yet still complex art is as masterful as ever. He's as adept with facial expressions as he is with battles and decapitations. The writing is as smooth as fine sake, expressing humor, disdain, happiness, and sadness with equal skill. My favorite stories in the collection were "A Town Called Hell," Sakai's take on Red Harvest, and "The Death of Lord Hikiji," an Eisner Award-nominee. Honestly, they were all good, though. Anyone already reading Usagji Yojimbo knows what to expect. While I already have Usagi Yojimbo Legends and I've pre-ordered Usagi Yojimbo Saga Volume 8, I dread the day when I have no Usagi Yojimbo comics left to read. Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo Saga continues on it's meteoric course toward the comics hall of fame. 4 out of 5 katana.

    This one ended rather morbid, but still a good Usagi volume.

    Even in its seventh volume, Usagi Yojimbo's quality remains as strong as ever. With beautiful art, compelling stories, and some of the best characters in comics, Stan Sakai makes it all seem effortless. Highest possible recommendation!

As with the earlier compilations, the stories are a mix of drama, humor and action that are sometimes poignant and intense and other times light and fun. I particularly liked how the books 'A Town Called Hell' and 'Red Scorpion' (featured in this saga) came full circle in the storytelling within their respective collections. It gave a sense of closure to those books. I look forward to reading more, though I've caught up enough that I can no longer binge read massive collected story sets. Alas.

Of course, with Sasuke involved there is arcane danger, and it’s mixed with a piece of Japanese culture, the netsuke. This arc begins a phase of growth for Kitsune as a character, as well as her young sidekick Kiyoko. Throughout the story-arcs, Usagi demonstrates his honor and faithfulness repeatedly in the stories in this volume. But it is in another arc that puts Japanese culture on display, this time the nagado-daiko, that Stan Sakai reveals more about Usagi’s priorities by showing us how he honors those he considers truly faithful and righteous. With Stan’s attention to world-building, Usagi’s reputation has spread and the danger he encounters is now frequently aware of who he is. The deceitful sources of his trouble seem to only grow: along with the emergence of new leagues of enemies,we are briefly reminded that Jei still roams and that Lord Hikiji still foments trouble; but this reader is sure that Usagi-san will be ample to the task.

    I am always in awe of writers like Sakai who - after 25 years can still write fresh engaging stories. I only started reading Usagi last year (shame on me) not realizing the cute bunny would be used to tell very real and dramatic adventures of a Ronin traveling the land. Now - the art...it is crude...but it does its job. But it is the stories that shine. Some of the standouts are Usagi helping out a town caught in a war between two bosses.

I only started reading Usagi last year (shame on me) not realizing the cute bunny would be used to tell very real and dramatic adventures of a Ronin traveling the land. Now - the art...it is crude...but it does its job. But it is the stories that shine. Some of the standouts are Usagi helping out a town caught in a war between two bosses. He revisits the town later and the ongoing plot has a satisfying ending. There is also his arc with the Red Scorpion gang which has many sub stories and finally a good dramatic end. But all the stories are fun. It is great to see how Stan tells self contained stories but also works in a longer arc. And all of them have moments of drama and emotion. Just a joy to read. I love this series.

    Do you like history? If you do then you will like this book. It is very interesting and it is about a samurai in Japan. I have read all of them so far and the stories are always different.
