Yurei Attack!: The Japanese Ghost Survival Guide

I didn't even know this was coming out (July 10) until a little while ago when I was browsing Yokai books on Amazon:

I ordered mine through Amazon about a month ago. This is the third book in Matt Alt's "Attack" series. The others are Yokai Attack! and Ninja Attack! All are terrific.

After looking at both these cool books (Yurei and Yokai) on Amazon last night, I was struck by the thought of if a second Usagi Yojimbo water-color painted original graphic novel was ever made, how neat it would be to have it called "Usagi Yojimbo: Yurei"

(if you try, you can turn any non-Usagi topic into a Usagi topic) :D

OK, I'll go away now......

Speaking of Matt Alt and Hiroko Yoda, this is another fun book that they did that's worth a look if you enjoyed the other ones (I somehow hadn't even heard of this one until I came across it browsing on Amazon a few days ago):

You can get a copy pretty cheap through Amazon Marketplace, mine just arrived a little while ago.

I also thought I would mention that new expanded editions of Yokai Attack and Ninja Attack are coming soon from Tuttle Publishing (both have 16 extra pages and all of the illustrations will be in color):
