Usagi Yojimbo: Volume 6 – Circles – Stan Sakai

This has something for everyone. There are the stand alone folk tales that could involve any samurai and there are the personal dramas of Usagi himself. There is a good balance and those that don’t advance our hero’s story are dramatic and engaging. There are some shock characters from the past that you didn’t think would return.

The art style seems to have a lighter touch now than the previous volume. The fine line work from the earliest issues is still few and far between unfortunately.

This is a really enjoyable addition bringing genuine insight into the life of a samurai. It also has a great twist at the end meaning this is a definite Thumbs Up!
