Usagi Yojimbo Bunny Hops To IDW Publishing

Stan Sakai’s long-running samurai rabbit series Usagi Yojimbo is making the leap over to IDW Publishing. Starting in June, IDW will release a new monthly series in full-color, beginning with a three-part story involving bunraku (Japanese puppetry), colored by Tom Luth.

Starting in 1984, Usagi Yojimbo has been published by Fantagraphics, Mirage Comics, and Dark Horse Comics since 1995. IDW plans on re-releasing full-colored collected editions of the complete saga, in addition to new material.

Sakai is a five-time Eisner Award winner, including three for Best Letterer.
