Default graphic novel

At the convention last weekend one of the venders had 1 of the graphic novels. Which I have been wanting for years. It was 75 dollars for the one, (the seller said there was only one.). I considered getting, but decided it was not worth 75 dollars.

A couple of days later I saw the whole set of 3 on ebey for 20 dollar plus 4 dollars shipping. I am now waiting very patiently for them to get here. They said they were in excellent condition.



Will post pics. once they get here. Maybe Mon. or Tues.

I'm glad you didn't overpay Mawra! Unless that first seller had had the 3-in-1 hardcover limited edition of the Dragonflight graphic novel, it certainly wasn't worth that price!

That is what I thought. They also wanted 100 dollars for the cookbook Anne edited. I did not even think about buying that one.

I wonder if those items sold? How exciting for you Maw, to find those graphic novels on ebay! And $100 for the cook book Anne edited!!!!! Well, I've got that. Forgotten where it came from but certainly not expensive

Which cook book? "Cookery Out of This World" or "Serve it Forth"?

"Cookery Out of This World," I wanted it, but I am not going to pay that much for a book, even if I had it.

Mawra, again, on eBay you can get a double signed copy (Anne and John Betancourt) for less than $100! So a good thing you didn't buy it. You did right. always check in here before buying collectibles!
