Trade Paperbacks and Hardcover Trades

Usagi Yojimbo

Collecting all four volumes of Usagi Yojimbo and other stories published elsewhere, trade paperbacks are published after enough uncollected material has been released. Hardcover versions of the trade paperbacks are also available and are generally identical in content except where noted. The dimensions of the trade paperbacks published first by Fantagraphics Books and continued by Dark Horse Comics are smaller than what has become the industry standard. IDW published books are larger and match the industry standard.
