"I think Usagi Yojimbo is one of the most original, innovative, well-executed comicbooks anywhere to be found. Stan's style of artwork, his crisp incisive writing, and his thoroughly professional pacing, all done in a relaxed and absorbed manner, have provided comics with something so rarely seen in this field--a new literary and artistic approach to illustrated storytelling."

Originally from Hawaii, Stan Sakai began his comic book career by lettering, starting with Groo for Sergio Aragonés. His work led him to meet Stan Lee, who asked him to letter for Spiderman Sunday comics, which he did for over 30 years.

Sakai is most famous for his original creation of Usagi Yojimbo, the epic saga of Miyamoto Usagi, a samurai rabbit living in late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth-century Japan. His work on Usagi has led to multiple awards, including several Eisner's. Since then, Usagi has been featured on television with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and has been named as one of the top comic book characters of all time.
