So will you play with me now?

Someone's been waiting very patiently for this day....

And here's a slightly better photo for those of us who are actually interested in books - only slightly better, mind. It's a bad headache day today, and much as I tried to capture the sweetness of the spot varnish on the cover, I had to settle for this as the best shot.

It's all just a little bit unreal; I keep looking at the book, hoping it will sink in.

Hmmm... No pain no gain. To celebrate the occassion have you considered getting 3 of your favourite pannels from the book tattoo'd in a strip across the lower half of your back? I would strongly recommend that you put a permanent marker down to remember this day.... memories fade but ink doesn't...

Congrats! How can one purchase a copy internationally? I am a huge comix fan - I used to read my brother's Beano and Metallica and then in college I took an Art History class focused on the history of cartoons - I was introduced to Art Spiegelman and Winsor Mckay and it's been love since then.
