Yes, it is the Fantagraphics Book 1. It was made as a large print about 20 years ago by an Italian publisher, but nothing for awhile.

Sorry to be late to the party.

I'd like:
-one of the new sketchbooks
-a Special Edition, if it's not too late

See you at SDCC!

Thank you Stan! I will add that to my request, and send you an updated PM shortly.

P.S. Here is a copy of my updated PM request:

Hi Stan.

Here is my updated list:

1) one new 2018 Sketchbook ($25), signed (& personalized to "Maichan" if possible)

2) Book 32: Mysteries HC ($60), signed "To Maichan", and with an Inspector Ishida sketch if possible.

3) one each of the SIX new pins: Usagi with sword, Chibi Usagi, Spot, Chibi Spot, EEP!, and Death Skull

4) one "BOOK 1" print - signed (& personalized to "Maichan" if possible)

5) one "new art" print - signed (& personalized to "Maichan" if possible)

I will not be attending SDCC, so as usual, Kyle (jabba359) will be picking up the items for me.

Thanks and best regards!

I've got my fingers crossed that the new art print is "seasons inspired" like Julie's chibi cards, and two of the prints Jabba picked up for me last year (spring and autumn). I don't know if that's how they were intended, but that's why I got them. I'd love to have a complete set of Usagi and each of the four seasons.

It's a winter print. I will upload the art on my FB page tomorrow.

Prices:

The pins will be mounted on backing cards and in little plastic bags and will be $12 each, but $10 each if you buy 3 or more.

The mini-prints are $10 each.

New sketchbook is $25 and is the same format as last year's.

The new print will be $20.

We also have the Mondo print from last year, but not this year. This year's will not be available until August and we will probably have signed copies in our store. The ones from Mondo are not going to be signed.

We also have the old limited edition, San Diego Exclusive prints of the cover of Saga 1 for $100, which is the same price as it was when it came out.We also have the 100th DH issue cover print for $50. And we will be bringing one copy of the Saga 1 HC for $500 (I can't believe what they're asking for it on Amazon).

As usual, anything you had missed previously that you are looking for, let me know--back issues, various hardcovers or trade paperbacks, etc. One Dojo member asked for the silk screened Banner print.

We will also have a LOT of art this time--Four portfolios.

Dear Stan,

What are the mini prints? I saw your FB post on one mini-print Usagi collaboration between Julie and you. Are there more mini-prints or is that the only one? Are Julie's postcards prints considered mini-prints? Thanks!

Peace, maka

The mini-prints are 5x7" and mostly feature her art or collaborations. She is not comfortable doing full size ones of her own work yet, but I am hoping she will do one of the entire primary characters in her chibi style. We have about 6 or so images.

Will all of these great prints and pins be listed in Stan's store as well in the near future for those of us that won't make it to SDCC? Sorry if this has already been answered

It hasn't been answered yet. If we don't hear anything, I'll ask tomorrow night at the show.

They will all be available on my website after the San Diego. Daniel says, even the pins (though we have to find a simple secure method of shipping.

How soon after San Diego? We cannot say for sure because we have another trip just after, and we leave for another convention a week later.

Besides this print, another new one we have is the Fantagraphics Book 1 image.
