Usagi Yojimbo Volume 14 Demon Mask

Stan Sakai Dark Horse Comics Comics & Graphic Novels

The close of 16th century Japan was a violent age, as rival feudal lords fought for land and power. Miyamoto Usagi braved many a battle only to lose his lord and find himself a masterless samurai, or ronin. While many ronin became bandits or mercenaries, Usagi chose the warrior pilgrimage: wandering the land, fighting injustice, seeking enlightenment. Eisner Award winner Stan Sakai has crafted a truly original and delightful work, an all-ages adventure epic that creates a world of excitement, mystery, and imagination, while building each story on painstaking research of Japan's history, culture, and mythology. Demon Mask is a collection of diverse Usagi stories, featuring a graveyard encounter with creatures from Japanese folktales, a whodunit clash with a mysterious masked assassin, a young adventure-lover insistent on receiving Usagi's sword training, a peasant village terrorized by a ravaging Spider Woman, and more. Few works of graphic fiction offer -- or deliver -- as much action, depth, and sheer fun as Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo.

Stan Sakai

Vers la fin d'un XVIe siècle plein de violence au 3apon, Miyamoto Usagi participa à de nombreuses batailles, pour finir par perdre son seigneur et devenir un samouraï sans maître, un ronin. Alors que beaucoup de ces derniers devenaient des bandits ou des mercenaires, Usagi prit la voie du pèlerinage du guerrier, parcourant le pays en quête de sagesse et de justice. Des luttes contre les sombres ambitions d'hommes machiavéliques aux combats contre des bêtes surnaturelles, le voyage d'Usagi l'amène à faire face à toutes sortes de rencontres et de dangers: une confrontation dans un cimetière avec des créatures inhumaines, un jeune garçon féru d'aventure, un village terrorisé par une femme-araignée...

And while Anotsu may indulge in a moment of peace, his enemies are not at rest, among them Rin, who has stalked him for years to take revenge for the murder of her parents. Anotsu had best make sure that if he stops to smell the flowers, he doesn't end up losing his head!
