    Story and art by Stan Sakai. Usagi is one well-traveled, long-eared ronin rabbit, and his reputation gets around. In this issue, three peasants at a country inn trade tales of the samurai master. One, a merchant's assistant, needed a bodyguard to help him transport his master's money from one city to another in the middle of the winter; the second, a fishmonger, tells the story of a time when his business was threatened by yakuza in the spring; and the third, a would-be robber, spins a summer story about the first time he lay in wait for a potential victim. Three stories for "Three Seasons." Usagi really knows how to leave an impression! 32 pages, B&W. Cover price $2.99.

    Usagi Yojimbo (1996- 3rd Series) 50

    Story and art by Stan Sakai. Usagi? Dead? Oh, no! This can't be. But there he is, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood, dead at the hands of Yakuza thugs. This may be the darkest hour yet. And it's all because of that foolish Kitsune, the thief/street entertainer, who crossed the wrong people. Usagi was only recently coming to terms with his rash decision-making problem. Now it seems like he's only got a "ghost" of a chance to achieve that greater depth of patience. Join us for the most shocking issue of Usagi Yojimbo yet. 32 pages, B&W. Cover price $2.99.
