CBCC 55: Miyamoto & Tomoe - The Mother of Mountains
Back to back, Miyamoto Usagi & Tomoe Ame must battle the Blood Princess and rescue an enslaved village in "The Mother of Mountains." The two Samurai warriors reveal the courageous core of their character time and time again within the pages of Usagi Yojimbo, and this storyline showcases how such a code is infectious to those around them, including the reader. This week, we continue to apply Lori Tsugawa Whaley's "Let the Samurai Be Your Guide: The Seven Bushido Pathways to Personal Success" to the unrequited romance between Miyamoto & Tomoe, as well as our own relationship. How can we exemplify the Way of the Samurai in our daily lives? We attempt to figure it out. Comics covered this week: "Usagi Yojimbo" Volume 3, issues 83 - 89, written, illustrated, & lettered by Stan Sakai. Don't forget to watch "The Sword and The Pen" documentary short film explaining the origins of Stan Sakai on Vimeo.
