I finally got it!!!! From Fantagraphics comes the ultimate USAGI YOJIMBO collection anywhere, USAGI YOJIMBO - THE SPECIAL EDITION! This amazing collection is two softcover books in a full color slipcase contains all the original stories within the 1160 pages. Here you get all the Fantagraphics comics as well as the first team up of Usagi and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
As I began to thumb thru the collection I was drawn to the full color cover gallery (the comics are in black and white by the way) and then the section with all of creator Stan Sakai's concept art. here you can watch the progress of the look of Usagi, from human (this I didn't know)... to the amazing rabbit he became!
If you shop around, like on Amazon, you can get this incredible collection for under $40.00, retail is about $75.00 and dare I say it... it's worth it at that price!
So if you have never read the most consistently amazing comic book series ever, than take a chance on this complete collection!
