I was contacted by Hydra Head Records, a label that puts out "experimental metal records." One of the bands they represent is Hayaino Daisuki. Their latest album, Invincible Gate Mind of the Infernal Fire Hell. What does this have to do with comics? It turns out that Stan Sakai illustrated a comic within the CD. I have a couple copies to give away along with a a comic book by Tom Neely inspired by the music of The Melvins. 
 
In about four hours, at 1:30 p.m. PT, I will post two questions in this article. The first to answer will win the CD, comic and I'll even throw in ten other random comics sitting next to my desk. Why am I waiting four hours? Just to give everyone a chance to get ready for it.
 

Question 1:

 
First person to answer is the first winner. What is the current issue number of Usagi Yojimbo (By Stan Sakai and it comes out this week)?
 
 

Question 2:

 
Where was Stan Sakai born and on what day?
 

Winners

 
The first winner was the_orange_crush  and the second was Omega Ray Jay. Check the comments below to see their prizes.
