Usagi_Yojimbo by AndrewTunney Usagi_Yojimbo by AndrewTunney
For those that don't read Usagi Yojimbo, and you should, every one of those skulls means someone got died.

"every one of those skulls means someone got died" ...fantastic!!! We needn't see more than the Samurai surrounded by death to know what's happened! Best Usagi Yojimbo art I've seen on DA!

Ah fella, made my day with this. I need to find more Usagi. Can't find book 8 anywhere.

Nice dark and moody pic though.

I forget which one I read up to cause I borrowed them all of a friend but there was a point where he had stopped too... there seems to be a run that is out of print or something, I'm not sure.

I reallly enjoy drawing Usagi though. It's one of the only anthro things I really dig... but then it's basically just Miyamoto Mushashi and Kurusawa era samurai movies which is pretty much all I watch so it's no surprise I guess.

You and me both fella. Its the only anthro comic I read, though I don't consider it to be. I think the only other one I'm curious about is Hip Flask.

Anyways they've been reprinting the new volumes, so its always worth picking up. I managed to snag the Art of Usagi cheap off Amazon, I reccommend that.

I hope Stan Saki will do a signing in the UK one day...I doubt it'll happen, but it would be nice to get that baby signed.

I really want to read a translation of BlackSad because that book is beautiful but my French isn't :/

I only heard about Blacksad when i came on here, now you've reminded me. There must be a translation out there somewhere. I've only seen the fan art, not the real stuff.

God it's amazing. I think the guy used to work at Disney, not sure, but there's this one panel that sticks in my mind which is like the interior of a warehouse and it has all these metal beams and supports across the ceiling and it's PERFECT.

I use to read Usagi religiously. I came very close to getting an Usagi tattoo.

Very cool work
