Been away for awhile, but I'm very glad I have this edition on order. I can't seem to afford the first seven editions of the signed hardcovers, so this will definitely suffice.

Only problem, it's not signed. I will have to remedy that when I finally get to meet the Sensei.

Can't wait to receive this.

Editor Kim told me the shipment arrived in the US two weeks ago. I don't know how long it takes to get them into the book stores.

If I had any wits, I would have sold my copy on eBay when I received it last month. Can you imagine what it would have gone for? Not only one of the first ones in the US, but the very first one signed?

I was thinking of something else I have on order. Amazon is currently showing a shipping date of next week, with scheduled arrival here in the UK in the new year...

I am wondering if the copy I ordered way back when through the local comic shop is still "on order" and if it will arrive this wednesday. A little more expensive than the Amazon copy, but it would still be a great Christmas present for one of the nephews (or maybe both).
