Usagi Yojimbo 27: A Town Called Hell – Stan Sakai

U27Here is another superb helping of Usagi action with six stories that don’t need any prior reading.

There is a wonderful three part tale that opens and closes this volume which has all the elements of Samurai drama plus loads of great fight scenes. It’s a two man Seven Samurai.

There are other tales that allow Usagi to show off his skill, his wisdom, his compassion, and teach us a few more aspects of Japanese culture and folklore.

The art is great and the black and white style really focusses your attention on what is going on. The expressions are terrific and really contribute to the voices you conjure to speak the dialogue. There is a cover gallery at the back.

Thumbs Up!
