Stan Sakai

WATCH OUT! An Usagi Yojimbo original drawing is out to get you…..or are you out to get an Usagi Yojimbo original? Stan Sakai has drawn this beautiful inked version of his popular ronin rabbit creation published monthly by Dark Horse Comics. Measuring at 9x12” on Bristol board, this Usagi is ready for you to end his wandering and give him a home. Signed.

Stan Sakai first published Usagi Yojimbo in 1984, and continues creating new adventures for his roaming katana wielding warrior. Stan is also a wonderful lettering artist, regularly applying his craft to the work of Sergio Aragonès (Groo the Wanderer), and the Sunday Spider-man comic strips written by Stan Lee. Stan is also one of the nicest guys in the business, the kind of guy that everyone wanted to help just a few years ago by contributing art for a 30th anniversary Usagi Yojimbo tribute book called The Sakai Project, and donating that art to an auction to help raise some money for a medical emergency in Stan’s family. He is loved all over the world as he travels to various conventions with his award winning roaming rabbit.
