Yokai are the monsters, demons, and spirits of Japanese folklore, such as the shape-changing kitsune, the obakeneko demon cats, and the evil oni ogres. Usagi faces all these and more when a desperate woman begs for his help in finding her kidnapped daughter. Tracing the abducted girl deep into the forest, Usagi finds it haunted by creatures of Japanese legend and discovers that they are amassing for a great raid on the countryside! Fortunately, Usagi is joined by Sasuke the Demon Queller, who is also fighting to prevent the invasion, but things aren't always as they seem — especially when dealing with the supernatural!

Usagi Yojimbo: Yokai is a wonderful story of the Rabbit Ronin. Stan Sakai does a wonderful job of mixing Japanese mysticism and samurai lore. His art in this book is second to none. In a rare bit of colored work, Mr. Sakai exhibits his wonderful watercolor work. His vivid art and wonderful imagination bring a great dimension to Usagi Yojimbo. His story telling skills have never been better as he weaves a tale of Japanese folklore. On the minus side, I wished the book were a bit longer. The commentary and interview pages that are included are a nice look into Mr. Sakai's artistc methods and creative thought process. In summary, this is a definite must have for Usagi Yojimbo fans and a great find for all ages.
