Stan Sakai – Usagi Yojimbo creator Exhibition at JANM

The Japanese American National Museum is hosting an exhibition of the work of Stan Sakai, the creator of Usagi Yojimbo. The rabbit samurai character is an often forgotten about property in the scheme of educational comics. Perhaps it’s because it’s American created versus Japan, but it does use Japanese history. Maybe it’s because of it’s time period and it being overshadowed by Maus, and a slew of comics about WWII Japan. Yet JANM is covering it. It begins July 9th and he’ll be doing a talk at 2pm.
