Lo and behold, this blog is a year old! What better way to celebrate than with a comic book spree? After all, G&B Comics were having a x1 US cover price for graphic novels and trade paperbacks this weekend, which coincides with Kinokuniya's 11th anniversary 20% sale for members.
Here's my loot for the day. All highly recommended. I'm sure I'll tell you more about them someday. Meanwhile, just enjoy the minty mint pictures.
Loot from Kinokuniya:
I picked up the other books in the Oishinbo series
