DARK HORSE ANNOUNCES NEW ‘USAGI YOJIMBO’ MINI-SERIES AND OMNIBUS EDITIONS
Stan Sakai’s name has been in the news lately as the Cartoon Art Professional Society has been raising money to help pay the medical bills for his wife, Sharon, who suffers a debilitating illness. That financial setback hasn’t stopped the prolific creator of Usagi Yojimbo from working, however. Indeed a new, six-issue miniseries titled Usagi Yojimbo: Senso is set to start in August. Plus, in celebration of the character’s 30th anniversary, Dark Horse will publish The Usagi Yojimbo Saga, a series of omnibus collections will gather the samurai rabbit’s adventures.

If you would like your phone to yell “Hi all my buddies!” at you when you get a Tweet or whatever (like mine does), here ya go.
Stan Sakai has been working on Usagi Yojimbo for 30 years. In a business dominated by Spider-Man, Avengers, Batman, and other superheroes, a Ronin Rabbit drawn by the cartoonist that created him has survived. Stan and his Samurai is a great inspiration to us all and shows us what we can achieve with dedication and love. When I met Stan, despite him lapping me several times over in talent and experience in our field, he treated me like an equal. I’m lucky to call him a friend.
As some may know, Stan’s wife Sharon has been battling a debilitating illness and the costs of this are beyond the scope of what most of us cartoonists could handle alone. He has been sharing his journey with us on Facebook and it has made me love this man even more. So today’s #DailySketch sale will go to helping the Sakai family keep fighting the fight.
