Excellent Stan Sakai. Book 23, Bridge of Tears collects Dark Horse issues 94-102. Brian Vaughan, writer/producer from TV's Lost, said it best in his introduction to this book. "In an era when the best television shows often become stale after just a few seasons, Stan has found a way to keep his serialized epic fresh for decades, always being brave enough to try new things while never being fickle enough to forget what made his story connect with so many readers across the world in the first plac ...more

Stan Sakain Usagi Yojimbon saaga jatkuu sarjan 23. osassa "The Bridge of Tears", jossa samuraijäniksemme joutuu vastentahtoisesti jakamaan vaellustaan nuoren naisen kanssa. Matka on vaaroja täynnä, eikä heistä vähäisin ole Usagin kannoilla oleva, taitavana miekkamiehenä tunnettu palkkatappaja Shizukiri. Lisäksi tarinassa törmätään pariin vanhaan tuttavaan, joista mieleenpainuvin on edelleen demonin riivaama "jumalten terä" Jei.

Sarjakuvan lopusta löytyy vielä Stan Sakain sadannen Usagi-numeron ku
The fact that Sakai can be as prolific as he is and still craft interesting, meaningful stories is remarkable. The Mayumi story here is the highlight with its bold conclusion.
The roast of Stan and Usagi included at the end was generally awesome and hilarious.
Me han faltado los otros 22 tomos para enterarme bien de que va.

This was somewhat disappointing, based on the overall quality of the rest of the series. Not that there’s anything wrong with this installment – it’s just not that memorable. It doesn’t help that it doesn’t seem to have an overall theme or story arc – it’s a series of vignettes, which push various reoccurring character’s stories slightly – but I was hoping for more.
It's hard to believe, while reading this volume, that Usagi Yojimbo has been ongoing, in one form or another, for twenty five years. With the 23rd volume, Usagi continues on with his journeys, defeating foes and making new friends. As the years go on, one thing we can be sure is that Usagi will continue to entertain us as we follow him.
Encore un recueil d'histoires courtes.
La rencontre avec Muyami est assez spéciale, puisqu'on y découvre un Usagi conscient des risques de sa vie d'errance, et peu désireux de la partager. Peut-être même que se cache un peu de sexisme là-dedans puisque Muyami est ... une femme ... et donc peu apte à supporter les rigueurs de la vie de ronin.

Lovely illustration and storytelling. It's amazing how Stan Sakai gets away with characters saying their thoughts out loud. It seems so natural. Thoroughly enjoyable and poignant.
Great stuff. And not just because I have a couple of pages in it. :)
Mayumi was quite the cliche. It's a little disappointing.
Jenna Mills
The usual good stuff you are guaranteed with Usagi.
