Best Archival Collection/Project—Comic Books
IDW Publishing proudly presents Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo Grasscutter Artist Select, a massive 464 page 9” x 13” tome that collects two of the most beloved Usagi Yojimbo stories. Grasscutterwas originally published in Usagi Yojimbo#13 – 22 (and won the prestigious Eisner award in 1999 for “Best Serialized Story”), followed by Grasscutter II,which was published in issues #39 – 45. They are both presented here for the first time in one volume.
Each page of Stan Sakai’s beautiful narrative has been scanned from the original art, courtesy of the artist’s personal archives, in the same manner as the multi-Eisner award-winning Artist’s Edition series from IDW.
The book itself is a limited edition of 999 copies, each signed and numbered by Sakai. The cover features a lovely dust jacket that showcases a beautiful new watercolor painting by Stan, created especially for this project. Finally, the book comes in a beautifully designed silver foil-stamped slipcase.
