    Discover the series that has garnered worldwide fans over the past two decades and won countless awards!

    Five years ago, Usagi dodged a bullet when the mysterious assassin Shizukiri was willing to accept an expected bounty rather than engage the rabbit ronin and his fellow wandering samurai, Gen.

When beggars hire him to kill a high-ranking samurai, Shizukiri becomes tangled in a fateful and unexpected plot. Will his skills preserve him, or is Karma truly inescapable? Find out, when master storyteller Stan Sakai presents Usagi Yojimbo #95!

Owing a favor to his lazy ghost cop buddy Trotsky, Wormwood, the gentleman corpse and his oddball entourage are brought in to investigate the case (or at least hopefully not stuff it up too much.)

    TOUGH LOVE: HIGH SCHOOL CONFINDENTIAL GN

    Publisher:
    Manic D Press
    By: Abby Denson

    Inspired by shounen-ai manga-melodramatic Japanese comics by girls about gay boys-Tough Love is a teen romance and coming-out story about a shy boy named Brian. More realistic than Japanese manga, this story centers on the relationships Brian develops with the boy he likes, Chris, and Julie, the girl who befriends him. Serious issues like gay bashing, suicide, and coming to terms with one’s own sexual identity are depicted with an honest, gentle touch. Socially relevant, fun, immediately accessible, and a bit of a soap opera, Tough Love helps gay teenagers to be more comfortable with themselves and less troubled, especially when they’re feeling alone and misunderstood.
