I hope this doesn’t come across as cynical, but I think this ripe for possible movie or TV-type interpretations. At DC, we had a 10-year head start on Fables over all the stuff that popped up where people said, ‘Oh, this reminds me of Fables, they should have just done Fables,’ and I agree with all those people. The people who were in charge of exploiting Fables in that regard just really, really dropped the ball. With First Comics, for toys, games, movies, TV, any of that, I have the absolute say on ‘Yes, we will do that/No, we wont.’ I’m tired of that decision being in other people’s hands. In a cocky, swagger-y sort of way, I’m interested to see if I can do a little better than the vast DC media machine in getting something like this underway. -- Bill Willingham

Continuing with my ongoing series of Usagi Yojimbo character profiles (Usagi and Tomoe so far), we now turn to another essential character in the series: Jotaro.

He is a young samurai-in-training who hails from the same village as Usagi, and is being trained by our rabbit ronin's former teacher, Katsuichi. Jotaro has met his "Uncle Usagi" several times, whenever Long Ears went to visit his birthplace. After Katsuichi-sensei is challenged to a duel by an old adversary and has to leave the mountains (I really want to post this storyline in the future) with his students Shunji and Jotaro, the young rabbit meets Usagi and gets to spend some time with our main character.

But there's more to Jotaro than meets the eye. And that is what Tomoe will find out in the story "Kill the Geishu Lord".

My most spoilerrific post so far )

That's it for Jotaro. Stay tuned for the next profile; my favourite character by far. The persimmon-loving, money-grabbing, dirty cheating rhino bounty hunter with a heart of gold: Gen!

"It was probably 'round about the summer Preacher was ending. I wanted to push the idea of the classic Western or action anti-hero a little bit more than I normally would, and that is where the religious fanaticism came from and also where the cannibalism came from. That was pushing that particular notion as far as it could possibly go, I would say."
