"At the end of the day, if they haven’t got any properties that are valuable enough, but they have got these ‘top-flight industry creators’ that are ready to produce these prequels and sequels to Watchmen, well this is probably a radical idea, but could they not get one of the ‘top-flight industry creators’ to come up with an idea of their own? Why are DC Comics trying to exploit a comic book that I wrote 25 years ago if they have got anything? Sure they ought to have had an equivalent idea since? I could ask about why Marvel Comics are churning out or planning to bring out my ancient Marvelman stories, which are even older, if they had a viable idea of their own in the quarter-century since I wrote those works. I mean, surely that would be a much easier solution than all of this clandestine stuff? Just simply get some of your top-flight talent to put out a book that the wider public outside of the comics field find as interesting or as appealing as the stuff that I wrote 25 years ago. It shouldn’t be too big an ask, should it? I wouldn’t have thought so. And it would solve an awful lot of problems. They must have one creator, surely, in the entire American industry that could do equivalent work to something I did 25 years ago. It would be insulting to think that there weren’t." -- Alan Moore

So, I decided to end a 3-year hiatus on the website by posting some Usagi Yojimbo, a comic series which I've only recently discovered, fell madly in love with, and think is underrepresented here. This is as good a time as any, seeing as he's just appeared on Nick's TMNT "Tales of the Turtles" this month (check it out if you can. It's good stuff, and made me long for a UY cartoon series).

Usagi Yojimbo, Stan Sakai's own creation (he plots, writes, draws and inks every single issue since the mid-1980's) is one of those books you're probably tired of hearing praise for... that is, until you pick one yourself and find out how good it really is! It has character development, adventure, humour, and a very deep cultural research which makes you (at least, I did) want to find out more about Feudal Japan and the Japanese movies that inspired Mr. Sakai.

This is one of the most recent arcs, and a story that kept me on my toes until the very end. It's called "Those Who Tread on the Scorpion's Tail", a three-parter than ran on issues #136-138. In order to keep a low page count, I'll scan each issue individually, and comment on them separately.
