Read full description of the books:
I haven't read any Usagi in a long time, but seeing new issues makes my heart all fluttery every time I'm at the comics shop -- it's so good, so simple, and so consistent that I have nothing but happy thoughts about this series. I have three volumes of it, and have read maybe a few more, but man -- there's no one I wouldn't recommend this comic to. You can basically pick up any issue or any paperback and dig right in, despite the fact that there's maybe three bajillion issues and many of the storylines have been running for decades. I suppose I don't go back to it more often just because the book is so freaking zen -- the anxiety-driven nerd in me is all, "Oh, good ol' Usagi is just fine, but BATMAN'S GONNA DIIIEEE" and then I go freak out and buy the book that has convinced me that it needs me most.
But tonight Usagi's longime creator, Stan Sakai, posted on Facebook that his wife is in emergency care. I've only met Stan once, and he hardly saw me and it was his wife, actually, who sold me the book I was buying. But he was just sitting there at his booth at ComiCon, drawing Usagi for a fan with a big grin on his face, despite the fact that he's probably drawn his silly samurai rabbit more times in the past two decades than I've eaten breakfast.
He just looked so damn happy.
I don't know Stan Sakai, but he posts pictures of his dinner on Facebook and talks about new recipes he's trying. He posts about going on hikes. He licensed his beloved Usagi to be a visiting hero in the Ninja Turtles universe, and I think I bought and rebought the action figure (till the little samurai kneepads fell off and I lost all the little samurai swords) about three or four different times in my life.
Stan Sakai is a real person. He makes real books about real people (who happen to be talking animals in feudal Japan.) I don't know him, or profess to be his #1 fan (or even his #100 fan.) But his comics make me feel more human, and his wife who sold me a comic one time is in the hospital tonight. I don't know them, but their hardships make me sad.
And I think that has a lot to do with comics, too. Real people make these things. These people imprint their thoughts, their idiosyncrasies, their personas on the books they make. Those things shine through.
And I guess I feel like if I did something weird like post this on Facebook, that would just be super creepy, so I'll just tell you instead.

Read information about the authorStan Sakai (Japanese: 坂井 スタンSakai Sutan; born May 25, 1953) is an artist who became known as an Eisner Award-winning comic book originator.
Born in Kyoto, Sakai grew up in Hawaii and studied fine arts at the University of Hawaii. He later attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He and his wife, Sharon, presently reside and work in Pasadena.
He began his career by lettering comic books (notably Groo the Wanderer by Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier) and became famous with the production of Usagi Yojimbo, the epic saga of Miyamoto Usagi, a samurai rabbit living in late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth-century Japan. First published in 1984, the comic continues to this day, with Sakai as the lone author and nearly-sole artist (Tom Luth serves as the main colorist on the series, and Sergio Aragonés has made two small contributions to the series: the story "Broken Ritual" is based on an idea by Aragonés, and he served as a guest inker for the black and white version of the story "Return to Adachi Plain" that is featured in the Volume 11 trade paper-back edition of Usagi Yojimbo). He also made a futuristic spin-off series Space Usagi. His favorite movie is Satomi Hakkenden (1959).
