Usagi Yojimbo: Lone Goat and Kid #6

The six-issue mini-series concludes with a reprinting of another classic Usagi Yojimbo story. "Lone Goat and Kid," which has provided the title to the mini-series, features the disgraced Yagi now working at an assassin and his son Gorogoro travelling from town to town avoiding assassins sent by the unscrupulous Counselor Wakame who comes up with a new plan to put Miyamoto Usagi in his path and see what happens assuming any outcome would be favorable to his cause.

The two ronin are evenly matched and the outcome would likely have been dire for at least one if not for Wakame's greed forcing his warriors onto the battlefield in the middle of their duel attempting to bring a swift end to the proceedings. With Wakame's treachery exposed, and his men killed, both samurai leave to continue their wanderings but their paths will cross again.
