Congratulations, Stan Sakai, on 200 Issues of Usagi Yojimbo!

The latest Usagi Yojimbo, #141, marks the 200th issue of the series overall. Issue #141, out now, is a stand-alone story, “200 Buddhas”, about a village terrorized by a gang and a kindly stonecutter who takes in the rabbit ronin.

The stonecutter looks a bit familiar to fans of Mr. Sakai, and here, in the final page of the issue (which doesn’t spoil anything about the story), we get a wonderful message to readers and a lovely celebration of the accomplishment. I’m running it here with the publisher’s permission. I share Usagi’s good wishes for much more. Congratulations to Stan Sakai on reaching this milestone!

    I’ve been a fan for many years, and my teenage son started reading Usagi Yojimbo a couple of years ago. I also extend my congratulations to Stan Sakai, and I wish him many more years of success and fun with Usagi Miyamoto.
