Usagi Yojimbo #160 cover - Death by Fugu: An Inspector Ishida Mystery. A Shogunate official is killed, and a puffer fish is the suspected murder weapon.

The art was drawn on 11x17 inch 2-ply 500 series cold press Strathmore bristol with a 10x15.5 image area.

I have no explanation how I managed to overlook this part of the forum until now. I dabble myself, just a hobby doodler with an interest in the comics process (obviously) and a great liking for Stan's style (obviously!) so to see all these pages and covers grow out of a blank sheet, and how... I'm geeking out. It's fantastic. It feels something like this:

And I can't wait to read #160. :lol:

One wee question, though: are the images for the pre-2016 topics still online, or are they gone?

I suspect Steve might need to edit and reassign the links for the images in the posts.

Thanks Mayhem. I'd be very appreciative if even just a few were shown again, but at the same time - as subtly hinted - I'm very appreciative and satisfied with what I can already pore over, here. :)

Yeah, all the links for the hundreds of images I had hosted on imageshack are all dead now. Now it is just a matter of rehosting them on Photobucket, when I have some time and access to the internet through something besides my phone's limited Hotspot link..... :?

Same sadly happened to all of Amy's artwork for example... don't suppose you downloaded and kept that Steve?

Check out the UY Dojo page and look through the photo albums. There is one there featuring all of Amy's Usagi material.

Is that the Facebook page? I've been through the fanart board here, too, and saw Amy's posts with a lot of praise attached - and a lot of red X's! Another reason to breathe deep and finally jump into FB.
