BALTIMORE CON 2011 Interview with Usagi Yojimbo Creator Stan Sakai
I've read all 27 Current TPB's of Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo. (I'm including Space Usagi and Yokai in there too!) It is amazing. So amazing in fact that I bumbled my way through this interview like a complete idiot.
For instance: "Usagi Yojimbi" Yo-Jim-Bee. Yup. and check out Stan's reaction when I say it. Gawd! You can tell he just want's to punch me in the face with a Katana.
And this one was great too. "When and where and how is your relationship with Dave Sim?" His response. "Uh, I never met Dave"
I am a moron. Check out all the Usagi Greatness here at the DOJO!
Baltimore 2009 Interview with Usagi Yojimbo Creator Stan Sakai
Guess which comic I hadn’t read yet!?
Thanks to the wonderful Dark Horse (and 1st 7 Fantagraphics) TPBs I am all caught up now. The next time I run into Stan we’re going to have some heart to heart about his bodyguard rabbit and the wonderful cast of characters in his stories.
I can’t stress this enough, If you haven’t read Usagi Yojimbo, you NEED to. So go on, hop to - at least pick up the first seven volumes!
