Cet homme passionné au physique avantageux a ravi le cœur de Charis dès que ses yeux ont croisé ces iris émeraudes pétillantes de vie. Ce bonheur, croyait-elle, durerait éternellement… s’il ne l’avait pas un jour cruellement plaquée en doutant de sa fidélité.
Aujourd’hui, le passé est revenu la hanter de douloureux souvenirs et ses baisers volés, aussi sucrés et délicieux qu’autrefois, n’arrangent pas les choses.

Dark Horse Loses Another Title as Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo Heads to IDW

Usagi Yojimbo

Dark Horse has been losing some pretty high-profile titles, Conan, Star Wars, Buffy, and now Stan Sakai has announced via the New York Times that his creator-owned series Usagi Yojimbo will be heading to IDW Publishing. The title had been published for 24 years with Dark Horse.

The series will be relaunched with a new first issue to encourage new readers as the previous volume ended with #165. The new series is set to debut in June. IDW will also reprint the entire series from the beginning in colorized collections. The new series will be colored by Tom Luth.

Usagi Yojimbo #1 includes a main cover by Stan Sakai, plus variants by Daniel Warren JohnsonKevin Eastman, and Walt Simonson.

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.

The move also reunites the character with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who are published with IDW. The two have crossed over a lot and Usagi Yojimbo was previously published by Mirage, the original home of TMNT. The series has also been published by Fantagraphics.
