Usagi Yojimbo #31

The "Secret of the Green Dragon" arc concludes with an issue more about  Miyamoto Usagi, Yukichi, and Chizu out-running and out-thinking the perusing Komori Ninja than battling them. Chizu's dangerous decisions will push Usagi to the breaking point especially after he learns they are going to all this trouble to protect a document that isn't even real leading to a final face-to-face with the Komori.

Usagi Yojimbo #31 wraps up the storyline, offering a nice epilogue for Chizu and justifying her actions (despite her sorrow at bruising her relationship with the rabbit ronin). We may not get much action, but there's plenty of tensions culminating in Usagi making an unexpected move against the Komori. With the adventure complete the ninja parts ways with the samurai, as the ronins' journey continues.
