Usagi Yojimbo Release Event with Stan Sakai, Exclusive Variant!
June 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
JUNE 19 is a major event in our Comic Book industry, as IDW Publishing brings Stan Sakai’s amazing creation, USAGI YOJIMBO, back and in full color with a brand new first issue. Mr. Sakai is no stranger to our Pasadena store, having been a frequent visitor when he lived in Pasadena. We are extremely proud to have him back as a Guest of Honor and are very proud to host him as he relaunches his most famous creation.
Collector’s Paradise had commissioned Superstar Artist Mike Choi to produce a stunning piece of art for our EXCLUSIVE Cover to the first issue. Mike is a HUGE Usagi Yojimbo fan and it shows in the final product, which is unbelievable. We also asked IDW Publishing to produce a super limited “Virgin Art” Edition of Mike’s cover, limited to only 200 copies produced. Both versions, along Mr. Sakai’s instant classic main cover, and some really cool variants by Walt Simonson, Kevin Eastman and Daniel Warren Johnson, will be available at the signing. You can pre-order and GUARANTEE your limited copies of the Mike Choi covers at:
