Stan Sakai’s ‘The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and Hermy’ Hardcover Coming In March [NYCC 2013]
Since 1984 artist Stan Sakai has worked to create a Ronin world starring arguably the most recognizable cartoon rabbit this side of Bugs Bunny with his epic Usagi Yojimbo and its assorted spinoffs. But before Usagi, Sakai was telling the tale of another warrior rabbit — one that Usagi just so happened to spin out of himself. Following the character’s return in the pages of Dark Horse Presents #30 this November, Dark Horse Comics will gives readers complete access to Sakai’s The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and Hermy this March with a 104-page hardcover collecting all of the previously-published sword and sorcery style stories from their assorted releases in the late 1970s and early ’80s.
Available on March 19, The Adventures of Nilson Groundthumper and Hermy hardcover features an all new cover by Sakai, plus new colors for all of the previously black-and-white pages by Tom Luth. On top of the comics content, the hardcover will also include extra art by Sakai.
