The case of the missing Moustache

Postby maichan » Sun Aug 25, 2019 21:37 +0000

So, I've been re-reading Usagi Yojimbo stories and am going through book one of the Saga series, and I noticed what appears to be a mistake. I'm not sure if this has been brought up before, but I could not find any discussion about it yet.

The story is KAISO,

Usagi visits a village that farms seaweed (Kaiso).
Yamanaka-san the Kaiso Broker has a moustache that is very... unique.
However he is missing his moustache in one panel...

Has Stan ever commented on this? I wonder if he ever thought of correcting this 'blooper'?

Dear Readers,
Excellent find Maichan.
Was it done on purpose to test us?
Mistakes in antique quilts were made on purpose to demonstrate humility?
Maichan you have a bright future as a proof reader!
Thank you all for the fun.
Best wishes,
