Going by the information listed on the Worlds of Westfield web-site, it has a release date of November 24, 2010, and was relisted in the September 2010 catalog.

Things From Another World has almost the same date listed on their web-site, but the year is still listed as 2009 instead of 2010.

Since it was listed in the September issue of Previews, October would have been too early for release going by the normal amount of advance time of 2 - 3 months for items listed. (i.e. comics listed in September are released in November, books listed in September are released in December - aproximately).

I got one of those boxed sets today, and, boy, are they heavy. It looks really good.

According to Kim, it will be out in time for Christmas, but just barely.

Looking really good, the video shows more than the photos could :D

Although I do see Fantagraphics have called the very first story "Usagi Yojimbo" instead of "The Goblin of Adachigahara"...

This comment, which pretty much leads off the book's description, just bugs me!

"Created in 1984 as a supporting character for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

You would think that Fantagraphics would know better!

As far as the first story being titled "Usagi Yojimbo," that was the original title of the story when it was published in Albedo #2.
