After unveiling details about the Usagi Yojimbo: Ice and Fire miniseries last week, the first new Usagi Yojimbo miniseries to be published under the new partnership with creator Stan Sakai under the Dogu Publishing imprint, Dark Horse has announced a new edition of the Usagi Yojimbo Saga: Legends trade collection.

Usagi Yojimbo Saga: LegendsAs fans of Sakai’s rabbit rōnin are well aware, last year the prolific creator struck a deal with Dark Horse to publish new Usagi Yojimbo material under the new imprint Dogu. According to the press release, this 2nd Edition volume “contains over 500 pages of renowned Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai’s enduring samurai masterpiece.” In addition, it features “a new painted cover by Sakai himself and a full-color cover gallery.”

Here’s how the publisher describes the new edition of the trade paperback:

The quintessential companion to the Usagi Yojimbo Saga series from Dark Horse, Usagi Yojimbo Saga: Legends collects some of the most exhilarating and engrossing self-contained stories starring the iconic rabbit rōnin. These tales see Miyamoto Usagi face off against a lineup of incredible foes, including dinosaurs, demons, and aliens!
