    1. Every time I read Usagi Yojimbo, I feel at ease for some reason. This comic book makes me feel relaxed and I suddenly lose all my negative energy. Maybe it is because of how Usagi is portrayed in this comic book, because it is hard not to love him. This volume colleges all 16 issues of the Mirage comics and the first 6 issues of the Dark Horse series. In other words, this volume collects the 8th, 9th, and 10th volumes of the trade paperbacks, which is perfect for me because they are becoming una [...]


    2. Super fun stuff. After enjoying Lone Wolf and Cub, I wonder why it took me so long to finally check out this series. it's based in the same time period and stars a Ronin so it seems like it should be perfect for me. And it is. I think I let my distaste of anthropomorphism throw me off. Usagi is certainly not a childish book and I really shouldn't​ have that bias since I love other anthropomorphic comics like Blacksad and the work of Jason. I think this volume highlighted the growth of Sakai as [...]


    3. This was cool. A rabbit samuari, a fox thief by the name of Kitsune. The Ninja Turtles show up. It's cool. Nice and fun.


    4. I've heard about this series for some time with many people saying good things about it. I was able to find an inexpensive copy to check out. This collection has some early stories in it. Often it's not unusual for a series to get better in quality as the writing and story progresses. That is the case here as this book collects multiple story arcs, some rather short and some longer in length. The art is all black pencils on white backgrounds. It does appear to get a bit more refined as it goes a [...]


    5. There's a reason why people seem to rave endlessly about how good a read the Usagi Yojimbo comics are. The first chapter was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle crossover, and I question its placement in a compilation otherwise dedicated entirely to Usagi. (Even if I like tmnt, why is it the FIRST chapter, guys?)The rest of the volume was absolute GOLD. Its action isn't too in-your-face: rather, this is a deep story of a single rabbit's honor in a world where both villains and government officials can [...]


    6. Stan Sakai is and always will be my favorite cartoonist, illustrator, comic book storyteller. Usagi is a masterclass in stunning modern, minimalist sequential storytelling. Anyone who aspires to work in the industry should study and analyse Usagi from every imaginable angle. As a multi-ethnic American I sometimes feel like I'm not allowed to feel ownership of my Japanese culture, but Sakai's work makes Japanese history accessible to anyone and everyone, and distills complex ideas and traditions [...]


    7. Usagi Yojimbo was a total surprise knock-out. I loved every minute gushing through this book. I tore through this piece of art with a smile on my face the whole time. A fast pace, historically correct tale of a samurai ninja rabbit; what more do you want?


    8. Being laid up in bed with a bad back I get to catch up on some reading. I'm cruising through this and enjoying every nostalgia filled page.


    9. I have been a fan of Usagi Yojimbo ever since I was a young boy, first encountering him, as many my age did, in the TMNT cartoon and the Playmates action figure, which I treasured. I had not read many of the comics before, so I wanted to start with the beginning, as it were. This collection is called book one, but apparently does not include the first seven volumes of the series, which seems like a huuuuuge oversight. Still, while the stories themselves rarely surprise me and sometimes the dialo [...]


    10. What can I say about Usagi Yojimbo that will do it Justice? When I was a teenager (back in the 90's) I tried to read this story of the "Ronin Rabbit" because there was a loose affiliation with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, I really didn't understand the complexity, history, and beauty of the story telling. At that age storytelling was lost on me; I wanted dark superheroes and vigilantes then. I just couldn't get into it then.Now that I'm 37 I realize Sakai's work was just too sophis [...]


    11. It's been some years since I last read a Usagi Yojimbo book. When I restarted reading/collecting graphic novels it was on my wish-list, but the amount and (non)availability of books was putting me off somewhat. So I'm more than happy that dark horse is putting out it's saga-books, giving me a chance to catch on again.Someone in one of the forewords described UY as "Carl Barks meets Akira Kurosawa" and that right to the point. The storytelling, the cast of characters and the art are of the best o [...]


    12. This first volume of the Dark Horse series (but still not the first volume from before that era, so picking up after 1-8 collections I believe) is a well priced and huge gift for the UY consumer.About three of the issues that went into this collection I once owned when a child, but to see that whole loosely connected series of events cascade at once was far more fun. Its a really great series that actively tries to overturn genre tropes and in particular experiments with perspective in comic pan [...]


    13. I first encountered Usagi Yojimbo in the early Nineties at my friendly local comics shop. I was struck by the simple, clean artwork and the strong storytelling. It wasn't until I bought this volume that I was able to read the Usagi Yojimbo story from it's earliest independent days.Stan Sakai's skill and talent at sequential art and storytelling exceed those of Dave Sim ("Cerebus"), whose work was the previous standard I used.This volume is filled with stories of Usagi and the times and culture h [...]


    14. I was confused by the title of this book, it is not a collection starting from the beginning of the Usagi Yojimbo series rather it contains books 8-10, and there are many returning characters who I've not read about before in the issues I'd previously picked up for this book.However Stan Sakai is a master storyteller and I never felt I was at a loss for understanding because of these returning characters. The historical tidbits are interesting, and the book was very enjoyable.


    15. This is one of the best bound books I have read. I read all of these years ago from the Dark Horse Library at Portland State and their presentation here is amazing. For anyone who is a fan of graphic story telling should have this bound volume in their collection. It is an amazing package for the price and reading just makes you feel warm and fuzzy. I am stoked that Dark Horse is releasing more similarly packaged volumes.


    16. Usagi, a ronin traveling around feudal Japan, has samurai adventures. Also, Usagi is a rabbit.Much more fun than I was expecting. I've never cared much for samurai stories, but Stan Sakai's classic storytelling with fantastic fight scenes won me over. The bits of history sprinkled throughout are interesting, as well.Recommended for: comic book fans, history buffs, samurai lovers


    17. Amazing comic. It's got bright silly moments and very dark moments. It's exactly what I enjoy in traditional ronin tales.


    18. Was hoping to read the story from the beginning but I was disappointed to find out that it starts with the Dark Horse issues (many of which I already own) and skips the Fantagraphics comics.



    19. Beautifully told and engaging. I have always loved Usagi since the first time I met him in the 2003 rendition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This collection covers the early publications of his comics, which, like today, are filled with adventure, heart, historical settings, and humor. Some of the fighting is intense yet never gory. So much is wrapped into Usagi Yojimbo it is hard to give a good description of it. All I can say is it is an a story that will pull you in and you will love th [...]


    20. This is an amazing read everyone should start at some point, granted I now need to find books 1-7 which were mentioned now. What's amazing is that this is part of an ongoing series that has been around since the mid 80s and there is no lag in quality. Plus it now fascinates me on the topic of feudal Japan.


    21. I wish I could explain what it is about Usagi Yojimbo stories that is both comforting and satisfying. I just really enjoy the way Sakai's art and storytelling unfold effortlessly. Some panels are incredibly detailed and you hardly notice. Others are very sparse, yet iconic. It's truly a classic character and series.


    22. I grew to love this the more I read from it. Whereas I found the beginning clunky (it was a TMNT crossover) and the visuals simple, as I read more the simplicity of the stories, the clean visuals and japanese atmosphere pulled me in and left me wanting more. A surprisingly good book.


    23. Great art and storytelling as always frpm Stan Sakai. The art is fantastic. The stories are entertaining and engaging as well as informative. if you've never read Usagi Yojimbo you need to and this book in is a great place to start.


    24. Great art. Great writing. Fun, exciting, often moving stories done in 1 or 2 issues. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this one.





    25. It can be confusing to decide which volume of a comic to pick up first, since the numbering tends to become odd after a while. While this is Book 1, it actually consists of the second and third volumes of the comic, the first ones published by Dark Horse Comics. Anyway, I had first heard of Usagi the same way I'm sure many people of around my age did, from his guest appearances on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He appeared in a crossover in the TMNT comics, and later appeared on the cartoon and a [...]


    26. This is one of those fat tomes I used to pass by in the library's graphic novel section and immediately ignore. It's too big, it's probably not worth it, probably dull.For some reason this past Sunday when I went, I stopped, and picked up Usagi Yojimbo. I had read a short narrative of Usagi before, so piqued, I leafed through the pages. I like reading graphic novels with anthropomorphic characters, such as Maus, and this featured a wandering samurai rabbit. Unfortunately it's in black and white, [...]
