Usagi Yojimbo #25 - Fox Hunt
By Stan Sakai; Dark Horse Comics, July 2011
FROM BACK COVER: “The rabbit ronin is dragged into the worlds of espionage and the supernatural in this collection of thrilling stories that earned an Eisner Award nomination for Best Continuing Series.
The warrior's path is fraught with peril as Miyamoto Usagi takes to the road with his bounty hunter friend Gen. Traveling the countryside, the samurai odd couple must put bickering over money and shortcuts aside as they encounter a series of dangers, including trickster foxes, a gambler who is master of the bullwhip, and several factions of treacherous ninja. The stakes are raised even higher when the pair go their separate ways, as Usagi falls in with a clan on a suicide mission and Gen pursues a killer who isn't what he appears, in adventures that will test each friend's honor-- and bravery."
