CBCC 54: Miyamoto & Tomoe - Grasscutter

Stan Sakai's "Usagi Yojimbo" is one of the great comic book series. Few compare, none top it. We begin our journey discussing the unrequited romance of Miyamoto Usagi and the Lady Tomoe Ame with the epic "Grasscutter" saga. Neither character meets on the page, but here is where we see them in their purest form. To see them alone is to know them together. To help us in our quest to understand our heroes, we consult "Let the Samurai Be Your Guide: The Seven Bushido Pathways to Personal Success" by Lori Tsugawa Whaley. As we discuss in this episode, winning the internal war determines the outcome of any external challenge. Stay true to yourself, and the path will clear before you. Comics covered this week: "Usagi Yojimbo" Volume 3, issues 13 - 22, written, illustrated, & lettered by Stan Sakai.
