Presenting the earliest adventures of rabbit ronin Miyamoto Usagi, with our FIRST full- color series edition -giving new readers the perfect opportunity to explore this groundbreaking series while offering long-time fans a new reading experience!
Usagi’s cast of characters continues to expand with the first appearances of his longtime tokage (lizard) companion, Spot and his greatest nemesis -the demented, and perhaps immortal, wolf warrior Jei (Grasscutter)!
Join Usagi as he is tested in an emotionally captivating tale between the bonds of family and the bounds of honor, as he helps an elderly mother face the villain her son has become. When the blind swordspig Zato-Ino comes back for revenge, can Usagi still triumph after the playing field is leveled? All this, plus more adventures in anthropomorphic Edo Japan!
Wanderer’s Road collects the stories “The Tower,” “A Mother’s Love,” “The Return of the Blind Swordspig,” “Blade of the Gods,” “The Tea Cup,” and “The Shogun’s Gift” from Usagi Yojimbo Vol. One, issues #7-12, originally published in black and white by Fantagraphics from March to October 1988.
