17th Century Japan. A world of bandit racoons, feline ninjas and warring animal clans.

In Usagi Yojimbo a young rabbit leaves home, family and friends behind him in pursuit of one ambition: to become a great samurai warrior. Trained by a maverick old lion sensei – a teacher of the warrior’s code known as Bushido – Usagi learns that the way of the samurai is one of peace and perfection, not just masterful swordsmanship. But as war engulfs the land, he must make a choice that will test his loyalty, honour and dearest friendship.

This Christmas join our long-eared hero on the adventure of a lifetime as he takes his fate into his own paws.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Stan Sakai’s long-running comic book series has featured the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and won numerous accolades including three Eisner Awards and the Parents’ Choice Award.
