Usagi Yojimbo Saga #5 Set to Release Later November




Hi Usagi Fans,

We’ve received the advance copies of Saga #5 in both Hardcover and Paperback form.  What’s neat is that they have a comparison page of the updated artwork for “Tomoe’s Story”!  Apparently Sakai-Sensei wasn’t able to find the original art for the reprint (published in the late 80’s, early 90’s), so he redrew the entire sequence!  It’s quite interesting to see the evolution of the character designs.

Sorry about the line in the text, it’s really hard to scan a paperback the size of the Saga books.  I tried to scan the actual duel sequence, since you can really tell the difference; but again, scanning a Saga book is quite the challenge!  I guess you’ll just have to get a copy of the book for yourself!

    Will these be advance copies which are going to be available in October?

    The Dark Horse web-site still has a November 25th release date listed for both s/n ltd and tpb editions.

    Hey Steve,

    Looks like there was an error in the release date so I corrected it! Thank you for the link. As for the early release, typically Sakai-Sensei receives his copies a week early, so we may do an early release then.

    I was just wondering what happened to including the color specials in this volume. Did Dark Horse decide to wait or have they been render black and white (I really like how color has been included so far).
