Great stuff. It's really heartening to see the comics community rally together in the face of what Mr. Sakai is going through.

Thanks, once i heard the news i had to do something for the Sakai family.
Stan not only shaped my childhood with Usagi but has shaped me as a artist.
I hope this piece does will for them.

Yes, I didn't discover Stan Sakai's connection to Sergio Aragones until after I began reading Usagi Yojimbo. Usagi's encounter with Groo in the first Fantagraphics collection is a dead giveaway.

Of course, having such an association only boosted Mr. Sakai's reputation in my eyes.

Sergio is a very nice guy i got to meet him a few years back and commission a sketch of Groo.
It is funny how they had them walking down the street in that book looking at each other.

Usagi is a very interesting book with its classical history mixed with cartoon/comic style.
I hope one day to meet Stan and express my love for Usagi and to maybe commission a sketch from him as well.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sergio Aragones at the Boston Comicon a few years back. He's a total gentleman.

I attended a lecture that Stan Sakai gave at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. Weirdly enough, it was connected to that Usagi Yojimbo video game that was sold via phone app.

But yeah, it was very illuminating to hear him speak of the character he's spent decades writing and drawing.
