Well, just over a year ago we asked for a collection of Usagi covers, and now we're getting it!

At 320 pages, it should be pretty comprehensive. I wonder if it includes the Fantagraphics run as well? Seems like that page count should be pretty close to what we'd be at with: Fantagraphics, Mirage, Dark Horse, color specials, Space Usagi, Senso, TMNT/UY (including variants), trades, and Saga covers.

Space Usagi will not be included in this one.

That makes sense, seeing as how he isn't the same character. Well, that means 9 more pages for other stuff! :D

And a quote from Facebook:

As a companion to 2006's The Art of Usagi Yojimbo, Dark Horse will publish Usagi Yojimbo: 35 Years of Covers in November.


Too bad I lost Go's eBay auction last week for the "Art of" hardcover, as it would be a better match than the softcover version I have. Haha, first world problems. 8)

I also hope this means it'll match the dimensions of the "Art of" book, as that's a great size for not being too cumbersome, but still showing off the art at a larger size.

That is pretty cool that we can get all of the covers in one place. Looking forward to it.

This is fantastic news and I'm really looking forward to this book. Wonder if there will be AP editions or a limited print run.

What else can we all suggest and make happen? :wink: :D

Like the Art of-- book, there will be only the mass market HC. No signed edition.
