  1. It’s not a question of IF I buy it, but whether or not I can buy it for my wife before she buys if for herself!

  2. I ordered it as soon as it became available. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever seen in comics.

  3. Thanks. I have been doing animal rescues for over forty years. Thanks for letting us know about this book. (I preordered!)
