Shopping spree

September 24, 2009

MOOM4.cover.qxd:Layout 1Helping people clean out their garage is not usually an enticing prospect, but Drawn & Quarterly has made it so with their Warehouse Sale for online shoppers. Bargains abound on great books like the following:

  • Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s fascinating autobiography, A Drifting Life, $17.98 compared to its cover price of $29.95 or Amazon at $19.77
  • All four volumes of Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip, $11.97 each compared to their cover price of $19.95
  • Aya and Aya of Yop City, charming Ivory Coast soap opera from Marguerite Abouet and Clement Oubrerie, each for about half price at $9.97
  • Either the paperback ($8.97) or hardcover ($11.97) edition of Adrian Tomine’s Shortcomings, one of the very best comics about an emotionally stunted twenty-something loser, and that’s a huge category
  • There are lots of great discounts on some amazing comics. Go look.

    Weekend update

    September 24, 2009

    I should probably be heading to the New York Anime Festival, but what can I tell you. I find the District of Columbia a lot easier to navigate than Manhattan, and I really enjoyed the Small Press Expo the last time I went, so that’s my choice of weekend destination. If you see me shambling around and looking baffled and skittish, feel free to say hi.
