I believe it's in Vegas. I'm chatting with a couple people about maybe going. If not, I have a friend who's a big Usagi fan that just got a job up there so he'll be moving to Vegas soon, so I can check with him as well.

I asked Ryan about the print on Instagram and here's his reply:

the print had to be temporarily taken done (sic), IDW doesn’t allow prints of covers to be sold until the book is released. It wasn’t a big deal seeing that it was already there but they just asked me to take it down until then


So it looks like I'll be able to order a print for myself once the comic comes out.

Thanks for getting right to the source and finding out about this.

I guess that means once the book is out, I'll get the print at the same time. :)

Rumored, but unconfirmed:
Torpedo Comics
Sakai/Eastman "jam" cover
Now that Torpedo has confirmed Stan and Kevin's signing on November 30th we can assume that one or both of the above covers with be made.

From Stan's Facebook post today, it sounds like those two cover possibilities are going to be one and the same.

Stan Sakai Facebook page wrote:What better way to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Usagi Yojimbo than by collaborating with my good friend Kevin Eastman, creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to bring you an exclusive cover which also honors the 100th #TMNT issue. Join us on November 30 at Torpedo Comics in Las Vegas, Nevada to celebrate how far we’ve come and where we’re headed. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Not available to pre-order yet, but you can check out the designs for some of the Dogu exclusive covers on the site now:

https://www.dogu.co/

I wonder if Dogu will be getting a pile of Darrow incentive covers since they ordered so many copies? The comic shop that was going to get some copies for a few of us didn't get any Darrow incentive covers with their exclusives (and Diamond and IDW don't have extras so they can't get any now). So now I'm on the hunt for some copies of the Darrow cover, hopefully for less than the $50 some other places are charging (I missed a copy for $15 on eBay the other day :cry:).

And since some of the details got posted in the TMNT #100 thread, I thought I'd update the list over here with what we should have for this release, if I'm understanding correctly:

Regular
Geof Darrow 1:25 retailer incentive
Blank (through Dogū)
Chibi virgin (through Dogū)
Foil virgin (through Dogū)
Jak's Tessa Rose (trade dress)
Jak's Tessa Rose (virgin)
Ryan R. Browne
Stan Sakai Studios Kevin Eastman jam cover (combines with TMNT #100) - trade dress
Stan Sakai Studios Kevin Eastman jam cover (combines with TMNT #100) - virgin
Torpedo Comics

Sources for some of the info:
Stan Sakai wrote:Kevin and I worked on the TMNT 100/UY 6 covers just the way that Walter Simonson and I did the Ragnarok/Usagi covers. I did the layout and inked the TMNT side and Kevin tightened up and inked the Usagi side. We also worked throughout the art as Walter and I did, so there is a lot of overlap of art.

This is a Dogu Exclusive through Daniel, so Dojo members should have no trouble getting a copy.

Dogu will also have a Chibi Exclusive that Julie drew, a blank cover, and a foil cover. Daniel has been busy.


https://tmnt-ninjaturtles.com/tmnt-100-idw/ (says there will be a trade dress and virgin version of the TMNT #100 cover, so I'd assume the UY #6 half would get the same treatment)

And at least one of those is limited to only 10 copies spread over a few different stores.:shock: And I thought some of the Usagi covers were hard to get.

While I may still strive to be more Kyle-like and collect the remaining missing variants to vol. 4, No. 1s and collect the variants on no.6-I would like to say that the story in issue six was immensely enjoyable. I was able to return to and re-read Usagi's first story with a greater appreciation for how far he (and we) have come over the years. It is similar to many of the lessons and techniques we study at my Aikido dojo. Returning to them and seeing them with older eyes allows us to experience them anew again. Sensei Sakai is an incredible artist, storyteller, and craftsman of the highest order. The battles shown in this issue-past and present, internal and external, personal and inter-personal all provide tremendous inside into Usagi and his journey-both physical and spiritual and makes me reflect upon my own places and purposes in life.

Well said SHB. I agree that we've all come a long way from those early issues. Stan's storytelling has gone from good to legendary. Usagi has gone from unique to iconic. I am appreciative of how Stan and Usagi & crew, as well as myself and other fans have grown and matured over the past 35 years. Usagi Yojimbo has had a subtle, yet profound impact on me as a person, and influenced my outlook on life in a unique way. I look forward to re-experiencing the 'first' story.

I haven't picked up my copy yet, and probably won't until this weekend, at which point I will take a look and join in on Jabba's discussion thread.



p.s. the Sakai/Eastman covers are sweet. I can't wait to get them. Hopefully they'll be easily available.

The foil cover is awesome. Photos really don't do it justice. I tried photographing it a few different ways, but the best thing to show it off is actually video, as you can rotate it to catch light differently. Not only is the front cover awesome, but the back is really cool as well. I posted some pictures and video here (I don't think you have to be a Facebook use to view them):
