I just saw Stan's post on Facebook about receiving advance copies of this hardcover (which he will have at Terrificon this weekend-have fun in my old homestate this weekend Stan btw) with pics.
I've been out of the loop for 3 months recovering form surgery, and this is the first I heard of the hardcover (surgery also killed potential plans to go back east for this show and visit family). Anyone know which issues/stories are included in this and when it's due to his stores/Amazon?

"I see a comics culture that preserves and appreciates its past, but doesn't wallow in witless nostalgia." -Scott McCloud

This contains the TMNT/Usagi 48-page one shot Namazu released last month. This book, however, is 72 pages long as it also contains some supplements (layouts, pin-ups, character studies, etc.).
Amazon shows a release date of Sept. 19. Generally, they get their comics 2 weeks after the comic book stores do, so that should put this at a Sept. 5 release at your local comic book shop. Or, as Usagigoya points out, you can get an early copy straight from Stan's online store right now.
edit: Looks like Stan's early batch is sold out.

Just an update that the hardcover became available yesterday in both comic book shops as well as other retailers (such as Amazon). I wonder if the delay in getting this book out (from the original July release date) is why comic shops and Amazon/Barnes & Noble/etc. got it on the same day instead of the usual 2-week staggering?
There is a Sakai Exclusive variant available right now, limited to 500 copies and only available directly from Stan's website or his booth at conventions. It comes signed and with a quick sketch (no requests). For a limited time, it also comes with a signing card for the upcoming Usagi Yojimbo: Mysteries (this is the title of the vol. 32 trade): stansakai.com/product/tmnt-x-uy-sakai-variant-hardcover-2018/
