Usagi Yojimbo: Ice and Snow #3

While Usagi Yojimbo: Ice and Snow #3 does include Miyamoto Usagi and Yukichi, their part of the story is largely secondary with Usagi attempting to warm his friend after surviving the attack of the Yuki-Onna. Unable to leave the home of the woman of the snows until Yukichi recovers, the pair will wait for trouble which will likely soon find them.

The majority of the comic involves the injured and Yuki-Onna looking for new food which it finds in the reluctant minions of Jei trapsing around the wilderness in seek of his nemesis.

While momentarily teasing us with the possibility the two could team-up against Usagi, it becomes quickly obvious that no creatures as greedy as these two, each with a score to settle against the rabbit ronin, could ever work together leading to an altercation between the pair and setting up a reunion with Usagi for the victor.
