Colouring All Of Usagi Yojimbo? IDW’s Retailer Presentation at San Diego Comic-Con 2019

Joel Elad and Dirk Wood took to the stage at the Diamond Retailer Lunch at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday for the IDW presentation. And while Titan Comics got people to wish Andrew Sumner‘s mother a happy birthday, Dirk went dark by telling us all how long ago his mother died and was grateful for the reminder. What goes on at San Diego, stays at San Diego, right?
