I saw a hardcover edition of Usagi Yojimbo, and the tip-in plate had “AP” where the number of the book should be. What does “AP” stand for?
(WWW Board January 2001) That’s an artist proof probably purchased from me at some convention or other. The books that I get as my comps are all artist proofs. There may also be publisher’s proof and printer’s proofs though I have never seen any of these. Fantagraphics did have copies of the Book 5 hardcover that were unsigned and unnumbered that were sold at a discount (about $25). But aside from that, all hardcovers have been s/n (signed and numbered).
