OK, everyone here should know how obsessive / compulsive my Usagi collection is, so imagine my surprise when I recently learned of the existence of a story appearance which I had been totally unaware of..... :shock:

Simple question:

When and where did the Usagi Yojimbo story "Samurai part 1" first appear?

July 1987...Fantagraphics Usagi Yojimbo #1
I'm worried this is a trick question and I'm missing something:/

Nothing tricky about the question, just asking for the name, issue number, and release date of the publication in which Samurai part 1 first appeared in.

Here is a clue.....

I was vaguely aware of a preview of Samurai in another publication prior to UJ #1, but for the life of me that I can think currently, I've never found out or remembered where that was. Guess you discovered the answer Steve! Question is, whether anyone else will...

Thanks everybody... No way do I get this answer without Steve's first clue...thanks for a push in the right direction Steve.
So now I have to come up with next weeks question but I must warn you I have no Usagi prizes to hand out :cry:
