This is a little different the bibliography which is an awesome resource and lists all the Usagi Yojimbo stories.

What I have tried to do here is list all the comics, magazines, hardcovers and trade paperbacks that Usagi Yojimbo has appeared in, including alternative covers (which I generally hate but collect as I am a completest), or that Stan has contributed a story to. This does not include comics that just have a Usagi or Stan Sakai pin up. If anyone can confirm that this is correct or let me know if I am missing anything that I need to add that would be great.

Here is one to drive you nuts as a completest....

HAWAI'I HERALD (volume: 23) issue: 1 Friday, January 11, 2002 (newspaper)
Stan Sakai: Creator of Usagi Yojimbo (2 page article by: Genevieve A. Suzuki)
Usagi's Garden (featuring “Young” Usagi) - 8 page story by Stan Sakai
Largest format Usagi story published to date (11.25 X 16 inch pages)





This one should be easy to acquire.....

Sixth Gun Vol. 4 gunslinger edition (Oni Press, 2017) has an awesome 2 page introduction by Stan Sakai featuring Usagi Yojimbo.

Is this a 2 page article and a plus a reprint of a story from Usagi #2 (Mirage)? If it is just a reprint in the newspaper I likely will need to keep it off my personal list to keep from going insane tracking it down.

It the Usagi introduction only in the limited edition GC version limited to 500 copies ($79.99) but not in the regular trade paper back version ($19.99). From what I can gather from a simple Google search that seems to be the case.

The trade paperbacks don't have the intro. But you also don't need to get the $80 Gunslinger limited edition, as the $60 non-limited deluxe edition has the same content, just without the fancy packaging.

I'm just follow Steve from FB to here. :lol:

I got the gunslinger edition (I've been buying each gunslinger edition and enjoy the story a lot). The only difference beyond the slipcase with different art is that it comes with signed tip in art that all three sixth gun creators sign. Is that worth an extra $20. Not if you just want the Stan Sakai Usagi intro. Stan's intro is really great.

Peace, maka

I have updated the first post to include one more periodical

Hawai'i Herald (newspaper with 8 page reprint story) (volume: 23) issue: 1 Friday, January 11, 2002

and 2 more Hardcovers

Sixth Gun Vol. 4 Deluxe HC (Oni Press, 2017) 1
Sixth Gun Vol. 4 Gunslinger edition HC (limited 500) (Oni Press, 2017) 1

If there is anything more I have missed please let me know. I would like to make this a complete list for all Stan Sakai / Usagi fans to be able to use.

I suppose I technically should list how many times each paperback has been reprinted but I do not know where I could find that information. I do not collect the trade paperbacks unless there was is hardcover version as I prefer the hardcovers myself.

5) Dojo 35th anniversary tribute
6) Sketchbook 16
7) Usagi Yojimbo Saga 8 HC

I also added two role playing game books I did not know existed

Usagi Yojimbo Fantasy Character Design Book (Sanguine Productions, 2005) 1 (contains selected pages - maybe 1/3 - of main book. Doesn't appear to have new content.

Soon to be updated will be other issues in v.4 plus the Grass Cutter HC (both editions) and the cover gallery HC
