Usagi Updates

Hi Usagi Fans,

Here are some of the more recent updates with Usagi!


Comic News Update:

  • Since June of 2019, UY is now published in full color by IDW Publishing
  • Past issues will be recolored starting with a secondary comic set to release in January 2020 called Usagi Yojimbo Color Classics which will also feature a brand new Chibi Usagi story! 
  • Halloween ComicFest Giveaway.  It also features an original Chibi Usagi story you don’t want to miss!  Ask your local comic book store about this.
  • 35th anniversary issue #6 will be a retelling and expansion (8 pages to 24) of Stan Sakai’s first Usagi story!  This will be accompanied by a handful of variants.  Not as many as #1, so it won’t be as overwhelming! 🙂  Features an INCREDIBLE retailer incentive along with a few surprise collaborative covers.  

Graphic Novel and Art Books Update:

  • Dark Horse is continuing to publish the past b/w version of UY with its final Saga installment set for release in 2020.
  • Usagi Yojimbo:  35 Years of Covers by Dark Horse is set to release on December 3rd.   
  • Usagi Yojimbo: The Complete Grasscutter Artist Select will be released for purchase (most likely at IDW Limited) soon.  Please check Stan’s Instagram or FB for news on the release date.  Here’s a peek at the contents posted by Maichan on the UY Dojo.

Usagi Yojimbo TV Show Update:

  • No official comment on this, but it’s most certainly ongoing!  These things take time, so we appreciate your patience.  Here’s the initial article.   

All the Best,
