Do these books pick up following Usagi Yojimbo #14 "Ein Bisschen Grun"? published by Schwarzer Turm?
Thank you in advance for this clarification.
Best wishes to all.
No, they will fill in the gap in the books that Schwarzer Turm released. Hopefully they will be successful enough that they do pick up after book 14 later on.
Carlsen released books 1 - 5 starting in April 1996.
Schwarzer Turm released books 8 - 13 beginning in October 2001, as well as re-releasing books 1 - 4 starting in January 2004.
Dantes will re-release book 5 this month, then they will release a volume which combines books 6 and 7 in March 2017, which has stories that have never been translated into German before.
Of course, the German editions are of a different format than the English editions and the German books 1, 2, 3 (etc.) do not correspond directly to the original English editions.
Book 5 from Dantes will contain the following stories:
- The Return of the Blind Sword
- The Blade of the Gods
- The Tea Cup
- The Shogun's Gift (previously unpublished in German)
- Turtle soup and Rabbit Stew (previously unpublished in German)
Book 6/7 will contain the complete Dragon's Bellow Conspiracy story.....
