Usagi Yojimbo Issue 154 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    The cover while great in terms of depth and line work is slightly generic in poses. Yes, it is good but it lacks an epic feel. This is also true of the story in that though it is good it is rather plain. The reason I state this is because it does not feel like a one and done but like something that will continue the next issue. For example leaving on the female ninja's death without resolving the mission creates a cliffhanger. There is also the factor that the story is contradicted by the promise of a more action-packed story suggested by the cover.

   Finally there are two problems with the interior art. First the lines look thin in places. Second the opening panel has a storm cloud with a lightning bolt that looks somewhat more like a wall of fire.

   So I would not recommend this issue be given to try and get someone into either Usagi Yojimbo or comics in general. However, I think it at least deserves to be recommended to hardcore fans of the character.
