Nice!

Glad I haven't bothered to pick up a trade of the TMNT/Usagi IDW story yet... this will be a much better addition to the shelf.

Does this include the Peter Laird drawn Usagi crossover, or just Stan Sakai's?

I'd wait. I actually held off on getting the previous editions because I didn't want to double dip if something better came along later. I'm not a huge Usagi fan, so I could wait.

From what I can tell, there are four major editions of this thing.

1) Original floppy one-shot, just containing Namazu (from IDW)

2) Hardcover version of one-shot, containing Namazu and Turtle Soup & Rabbit Stew (IDW)

3) Special Edition hardcover of one-shot, containing Namazu, Turtle Soup & Rabbit Stew, and The Treaty (IDW)

4) TMNT/Usagi trade paperback that this thread is about containing Namazu, Turtle Soup, The Crossing, the Treaty, and Shades of Green 1-3 (Dark Horse)

Jeez. I liked the story and all, but these releases, all in rapid succession, all containing just a liiiiiiiittle bit more than the last release, really milked the hell out of things. I kinda like that Dark Horse cut IDW off at the pass and just released an edition with EVERY TMNT/Usagi crossover in it.

Otherwise, we probably could've looked forward to IDW putting out the Super Special Edition, featuring Namazu, Turtle Soup, The Treaty, and the Crossing, followed a month later by the Super Duper Special Edition, featuring Namazu, Turtle Soup, The Treaty, The Crossing and Shades of Green Part 1, followed two months later by the Hyper Super Duper Special Edition, featuring...

You can see where I'm going with this.

I was cool waiting a few weeks for #2, and paying about the same price for it as the original floppy release's retail price. I already own all the older stuff, so I guess I'll just wait for the next Usagi/TMNT crossover.

At least Peter Laird's Usagi crossover is finally being collected, to my knowledge its never been reprinted anywhere before now. It's almost worth it for that alone.

Namazu will be printed in color but the other stories will be b/w. There may be some color pin-ups, but I'm not sure. The only story that readers may not be familiar with is The Crossing by Peter Laird, which, to my knowledge, has not been reprinted since it was published in Fantagraphics' UY #10.

Hare Today, Hare Tomorrow will not be in this collection because, though it was published by Mirage, it is a Usagi Yojimbo/Space Usagi story.

The Compleat (yes, I wanted it spelled this way) TMNT/Usagi Crossover book is scheduled for the fall.

from here.

So by purchasing the complete collection, I can pick up every story that Usagi and the turtles have ever been in together correct? Including the most recent crossover and dating back to the very first? (As in EVERYTHING?).

Oof. Agreed. I've already triple-dipped on this. Held out for the first hardcover but then found David Petersen's variant of the floppy... then I couldn't resist getting Stan's special cover (with sketch and bookplate!) of the "Special" edition that just came out. Now this news drops right after that. I already own all the shorts in their original publications.... what am I doing!?
