It’s our pleasure to announce that Usagi Yojimbo will be one of IDW’s Free Comic Book Day 2020 releases! Usagi Yojimbo will join our previously announced My Little Pony FCBD special as a free giveaway item on store shelves worldwide on Saturday, May 2nd (at participating comic shops, of course)!
Join Miyamoto Usagi on an exciting adventure as he meets his most unusual traveling companion yet — Chibi Usagi! The two worlds of Usagi meld for a hilarious story that’s perfect for kids and long-time fans alike!
Written and illustrated by Stan Sakai for over thirty years and published in over fourteen countries, Usagi Yojimbo is set in a unique world based on 17th century Japan. Miyamoto Usagi, who once served as the personal bodyguard for a Japanese warlord, now traverses this unique world – a landscape populated by ghosts, dinosaurs, monsters, and warriors of all kinds – as a ronin. In his many exciting adventures, the swordsrabbit hones his skills, saves villages, and often finds himself navigating the delicate affairs of national/political significance.
