Usagi and Tomoe share a snowy moment in the latest limited-edition wooden ornament.
Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai has once again teamed up with artist and woodworking expert Chris Schweizer to offer a Christmas ornament featuring Sakai’s signature creation — and his signature, too, if you’d like.
This is the third year that they’ve offered an ornament featuring the samurai rabbit in a seasonal pose — this time he’s also joined by Tomoe. While Sakai provided the artwork, Schweizer handcrafted each wooden piece. When he’s not drawing comics like The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton, Schweizer creates and sells wooden pieces and papercraft, like this Die Hard Christmas ornament, this collection of Santas from around the world and this Lord of the Rings chess set.

And that context is that Christopher Cantwell — note the “n” — is writing a miniseries featuring Hellcat, a character he brought into prominence and into Tony Stark’s life in his recent run on Iron Man.
Cantwell will be joined by artist Alex Lins, who previously worked with the writer on Moon Knight: Black, White & Blood. Unfortunately I don’t think I can make his name into a cat pun. Alex Lynx? That’s probably a stretch.
In any event, the series is set in the haunted house that Patsy Walker inherited and last appeared in the Iron Man/Hellcat Annual for 2022.
“It’s been so rewarding to go even deeper with Hellcat in this new miniseries, and work so closely with Alex Lins on this book,” Cantwell said. “I feel like Patsy was a great voice of conscience and groundedness in Iron Man, but we also hinted at some internal struggles and lingering darkness within her, which we explored even more in our Iron Man/Hellcat Annual issue this summer.”
