    I have a question: How did Usagi get his scar? Also, does anyone know where you can buy Usagi prints and original art?

    Well, it wasn't really a fight: Usagi was Lord Mifune's personal bodyguard, when Mifune died on the battlefield in the battle of Adachi Plain Usagi (as a final service to his lord) cuts of his master's head and escapes so that Lord Hikiji won't be able to display it as a trophy. While fighting his way out of the battle he has a momentary skirmish with Lord Hikiji, where Usagi gets that distinctive crescent wound above his left eye before escaping.

    On the Usagi board I asked when the regular series would return and got a reply from Stan himself:

    The first three issues for Usagi's return are already done, and the first comes out, I think, in May. It is a three issue story with Kitsune meeting Chizu for the first time. Kitsune's happy-go-lucky attitude is a nice contrast with Chizu's super serious one.

    I am halfway through the 4th issue (#148) The One-Armed Swordsman.

    For folks who missed the limited edition hardcover - Fantagraphics is reprinting Usagi Yojimbo: The Special Edition in softcover

    http://www.amazon.com/Usagi-Yojimbo-...=fantagraphics

    For those who came in late: it's the first 7 volumes in a bigger format, much like Dark Horse's UY Saga paperbacks.

    Finally got The Art of Usagi Yojimbo and The Sakai Project! Package just arrived. We left work early because there's supposed to be heavy snow coming, so I'm just gonna bundle up and enjoy my books for the remainder of the day.

    I've gotten the Art of Usagi Yojimbo but I have not gotten The Sakai Project yet. How is it?

    I wonder how or if the original Usagi graphic novel, Yokai, will be reprinted, as it was done entirely in watercolor.
    They are rereleasing it, only in TPB for now:

    Yeah, I mentioned that a few posts ago!

    I was actually blown away by it. The sheer amount of artists who contributed and the quality of the art knocked me out.

    I recently bought Saga volume 1 from a recommendation in the Collected Edition thread, after reading the first story I ordered volume 2. I'm now half way through the first volume and I don't think I've ever read anything this good. I can't wait for the paperback Special Edition and the next Saga volumes, seems like I jumped in at a pretty good time to start collecting and catch up.
