Usagi Yojimbo Book 24: Return of the Black Soul

Brendan Wright wrote:In the collected Usagi arena, this summer also sees the release of Book 24(!) in both standard paperback and signed-and-numbered hardcover editions. Return of the Black Soul is Stan’s latest epic, featuring the return of the demon Jei! Thought dead since Grasscutter, Jei has in fact possessed the swordswoman Inazuma, and has been hunting Usagi ever since, making this a showdown ten years in the making! The collection will include “Sparrows,” Jei’s epic return; “The Darkness and the Soul,” Jei’s origin; and a short story from 2009’s Free Comic Book Day comic.

And something I found of interest, another upcoming Usagi story in full color.... :D

On a differant note, will the MySpace Dark Horse Presents Usagi story ever be included in a Usagi book, or will it only be in the MySpace Dark Horse Presents trade paperback? Maybe as a bonus in one of the upcoming s/n ltd ed. hard cover books....

that is very kind of you, as well, mayhem!thank you for the offer...I already pm'ed my adress to steve, though, since he is the one mailing out the usagi cartoon museum buttons I can cut two flies with a single strike;)...I guess the proper translation for that figure of speech is lacking, but it sounds funny and one gets the idea;)...
but since we are talking here, do you by chance have any spare of the usagi 25th anniversary free poster from dark horse?I contacted d<rk horse on that one last year and a member of their staff e mailed me he would send me a copy but the only letter I got from dark horse was one containing a buffy the vampire slayer poster!?!?!...never gotten any information what happened to the promised usagi poster...;)

Okay, this is why Myspace sucks!

I try to find Dark Horse Presents and it ain't working. I click on the link and I don't go anywhere.

What am I doing wrong?

Fricken Myspace...its so 2003! :(
