The Stan Sakai Project

Going on thirty years now, Stan Sakai has shown us the epic saga of Miyamoto Usagi, a samurai rabbit, living in the feudal Japan. It has always been a favorite comic book of mine. Perfectly blending cartoon style animals handled with serious emotion and feeling, in the drama that unfolds in each issues 24 pages. IF you’re a comics fan, or a fan of Samurai films you owe it to yourself to search out and find these amazing stories.

In celebration of Usagi Yojimbo’s Thirtieth Anniversary, CAPS (The Comic Artists Professional Society) and Dark Horse Comic’s have gathered together a collection of comic industry professionals to help with the celebration, and pay tribute to Stan’s most beloved creation, Usagi, and in a time of need for Stan and his family. All proceeds from the book will be donated to Stan and his wife, Sharon. As well, as all original artwork will be auctioned off, and proceeds going to Stan and Sharon.

Each artist involved is too bring their unique style and interpret the subject in their own distinct way. Making this book a one of kind treasure for comic, cartoon and art fans alike. Some of the artists and creators involved include: Adam Hughes, Alex Maleev, Arthur Adams, Batton Lash, Brian Michael Bendis, Carlos D’Anda and GAbe El Taeb, Dan Panosian, Dave Gibbons, David Mack, Doug Wheatley, Eric Powell, Geof Darrow, Howard Chaykin, Jeff Smith, Matt Groening Matt Wagner, Michael Allred, Michael Avon Oeming, Michael Golden, Mike Kunkel, Mike Mignola, Richard Corben, Scott Shaw, Sergio Aragones, Tim Sale, Tom Mandrake, Tom Richmond, Walter Simonson, William Stout.

I was humbly amazed when I was invited to be a part of such a milestone event, and to help out one of the comic industry great’s

So, enjoy my little tribute to Stan Sakai, and Usagi Yojimbo, and I can’t wait to see what the next thirty years have in store for my favorite Samurai rabbit.
