Volume Two of the new series sees Usagi return to his home province to pay his respects, but ghosts from his past have other plans.

In "Tatami," Usagi returns to his home province only to find intrigue and betrayal! An important tea ceremony is about to take place, but what sinister plan does Lord Hikiji have for it and how are the Neko ninja clan involved?

Then, in "Mon," long ago, Lord Hikiji defeated Usagi's Lord Mifune to take control of the Northern Province. Usagi, now traveling through his old territories, still wears the mon (a family crest) of his former lord. But, there are those who still remember the Great Wars with bitterness and threaten to kill any samurai loyal to Mifune. What happens when they come across Usagi?

In "The Return," Usagi is on a pilgrimage to his late lord's gravesite, however, wearing the Mifune clan crest in Lord Hikiji's territory has made him an enemy. Traveling through this dangerous land he has made his way to the one place he had been avoiding--the village in which he grew up. Bittersweet memories awaken with his long-time love, until the village becomes embroiled in a plot to assassinate an emissary of the shogun.

Stan Sakai

Stan Sakai began his career by simply lettering comic books as he perfected his art and began working in the industry. He also wrote and illustrated The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and Hermy; a comic series with a medieval setting, influenced by Sergio Aragones' Groo the Wanderer. Stan became famous with the creation of Usagi Yojimbo, the epic saga of Miyamoto Usage, a samurai rabbit living in late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth-century Japan.

The story, first published in 1984, continues to this day. It progresses with Stan as the lone author and nearly sole artist (Tom Luth serves as the main colorist on the series, and Sergio AragonUs has made two small contributions to the series- the story oBroken Ritualo is based on an idea by AragonUs, and he served as a guest inker for the black-and-white version of the story oReturn to Adachi Plain)

In 2013, Stan illustrated the limited series 47 Ronin by Dark Horse Comics Publisher Mike Richardson. He also served as an editorial consultant on Lone Wolf and Cub and has contributed to two issues of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror.He lives in Pasadena, California.Author Residence- Pasadena, California
