Usagi Yojimbo #147

"The Thief and the Kunoichi" comes to a conclusion as Usagi and Chizu make the best of Kitsune's plan to sell Inouye's secret treaty back to the merchant. The warriors decide to use the time and setting of the transaction to their advantage by destroying a secret shipment of Ginseng Inouye is counting on to help fund his underhanded dealings.

Usagi Yojimbo #147 continues to force Usagi in between the two women and into the role of peacemaker which leads to a humorous farewell with both women that leaves the rabbit ronin all but speechless. The end of the arc also provides plenty of action as Usagi and Chizu work to cut a wide swath through the merchant's soldiers and provide Chizu a measure of revenge (even if it did mean having to save Kitsune's life).

The unusual threesome provided by Stan Sakai proved to be a great way to relaunch the ongoing series after it's lengthy hiatus. Usagi is back and, if this arc is any indication, the rabbit ronin will have his hands full with whatever fate has in store for him next. Worth a look.
