Japanese American National Museum – Usagi Yojimbo – Stan Sakai

Stan Sakai, one of the more unheralded comics artists and creator of Usagi Yojimbo finally has an exhibition at the Japanese American National Museum. It’s another pop culture exhibition on display at a museum. Just a a few years ago, comics weren’t okay at museums – it was controversial, and now it’s ok. Toys are fine too.

Here are some photo highlights (the Geof Darrow drawing is amazing)

    I went there opening weekend, man what a nice exhibit!! I’ve read UY since the early 90s, loved every moment of it. Stan’s a great guy, great talent for story telling.
