I will be picking these up from the printer on July 3rd.

There will only be three hundred copies.

[EDIT]
Due to the limited quantities, I am sorry to say that there is a limit of one (1) copy per person.

If there is a surplus of unclaimed copies after everyone has had a chance to request one, then we might be able to allow additional copies.

Each of the ten story contributors will get ten copies to distribute as they want.

A few more issues will be for people who helped out such as Tom Luth (cover colors & layout), Ed Moore Jr. (Introduction), etc

The remaining issues will be split between mail orders and those picked up directly from Stan Sakai at the San Diego Comic Con or later convention appearances.

Stan Sakai's currently scheduled Appearances:
San Diego Comic Con (July 17-21st – San Diego, California)
Fan Expo (August 22-25th – Toronto, Canada)
Other Realms (August ? - Honolulu, Hawaii)
Baltimore Comic-Con (October 18-20th – Baltimore, Maryland)
Lucca Comics & Games (October 30-November 3 - Lucca, Italy)

The 35th Anniversary Usagi Yojimbo Tribute is free, but it also has a back cover designed to have an original drawing added, if wanted, by Stan Sakai or possibly one of the story contributors. You have to deal with them for that pricing. :D

If ordering by mail, domestic shipping will be the cost of flat rate priority shipping plus packing material.

International shipping will be determined by destination.

When requesting a copy, please specify if you are reserving a copy for picking up directly from Stan Sakai, and at which event.

If requesting a copy for mail order, please indicate where it needs to be mailed if outside the USA.

And, of course, donations are welcome for reimbursing the Dojo members who help finance this awesome labor of love.

Dear Steve,

I would like one to have a friend pick one up for me at SDCC.

Dojo Members, please consider donating money to Steve who put the time, energy and money into self publishing this. You know self publishing isn’t a cheap endeavor. Thank you.

Peace, maka

I can't wait to hold a copy of this book. I'm extremely honored to be a part of it. Thank you again to Steve for inviting me (and my silly rats) to join in the fun. This is one of the most enjoyable projects I've ever worked on.

I highly endorse the suggestion to donate some funds to reimburse Steve. I self publish all of my work. It takes a LOT of time and money. Since I first found out about this project, I've been impressed that Steve was producing this out of his own pocket.

Also, if anyone will be at Baltimore Comic Con, I'll be set up there, too. Would love to hear feedback on my stupid rat story. Go easy with the rotten tomatoes!! :P

Obviously in for a couple for myself. Last time, I acted as a hub for cheaper shipping to Europe for European fans. I may be able to do the same again, perhaps you can look into what the cost of mailing X copies to me (where X = 10, or 20 etc) would be Steve?

[I've also made this a Global, so hopefully everyone can see it no matter which part of the forum they go to]

Hi Steve;
Three copies of the Tribute issue, if possible, I need to give one to my comic shop owner! I'll send you a PM to figure out postage and payment.

Many thanks!

Certainly interested, but will have to see what US-UK shipping looks like first.

Drop me a PM with a quote (Use a Co. Durham Postcode, like DL1 3UJ - that's a major landmark not my actual address!). I'll try to check back often, see if it's cheaper than expected. :)

I will most likely send a batch of the books to Mayhem to distribute to UK Dojo members from his location near London to reduce shipping costs.

I’m going to message Kyle about SDCC p/u. If that doesn’t happen I’ll PM you my address again.
