USAGI YOJIMBO #96
By STAN SAKAI
Dig, dig, dig. Poor, insane Jodo is digging holes all over town. Boss Hamanaka, Jodo's father, is dead, and his vast fortune is nowhere to be found! Gangs vying for control of the community wage an impending war just as Usagi arrives on the scene! And there's another samurai, mysteriously observing everything from the sidelines, who may enter into the fray-or maybe he's waiting for the town to be torn apart! Internationally acclaimed storyteller Stan Sakai presents the first installment of the two-part "Hamanaka's Treasure" this month in Usagi Yojimbo!
On sale August 30, b&w, 24pg, $2.99
Consider this your monthly reminder that USAGI YOJIMBO exists and shouldn't be taken for granted. Sounds like this story might be partly inspired by Kurosawa's movie YOJIMBO.
