I finished reading Stan Sakai's "The Dragon Bellow Conspiracy" this morning. The volume had been missing from my Usagi Yojimbo collection until recently. Unlike most of his books, this one works more like a novel than a standard collection of comicbook tales. Strands come together over the pages, and later there is time for an epilogue. It is not merely a tale of how the rhino loses its horn. It goes without saying that the book is well-illustrated.
