Bookshelf giveaway: comics (English & French), comedy nonfiction

One of my bookshelves started, uh, literally bowing down in the middle because of all the weight on it. So I figured I should take a stab at clearing it off.

All of these are free, but please PayPal me the shipping cost if you can. (Probably $3-$5 within the US, unless you want a really heavy stack of books.)

All in good-to-great physical condition unless otherwise noted. First come, first serve!

books

Comics

Little Orphan Annie, volume 1: Massive hardcover, the complete first 2 years’ worth of daily strips

Garfield: 20 Years & Still Kicking: Slightly less massive hardcover, slightly scuffed, anniversary compilation (now itself 20 years out of date), lots of favorite strips, making-of details, behind-the-scenes sketches, etc

Serenity Rose, book 1: Paperback, the spooky webcomic about a gay socially-anxious witch (I’m only giving this away because I got the 3-book massive hardcover compilation)

Angelarium: Little paperback, mostly-wordless sketchbook of super-weird angel designs

Miles Between Us, #1: Little saddle-stitched issue, odd little self-published fantasy, artist-drawn doodle on the inside front cover

Masquerade, #1-4 (not shown, but it’s this series): Four saddle-stitched issues, the revival edition of 1940’s “no powers, just wits and a snazzy coat” hero Miss Masque

Digger, volumes 1-3: Three paperbacks, the Hugo-winning webcomic about a lost wombat (another series where I’ve supplanted these with the all-in-one compilation)

The Hasty Pastry #1: Paperback, brightly-colored webcomic about retail comedy

The Thrilling Adventure Hour: Hardcover, comic supplement to the podcast, might contradict your appearance headcanons but otherwise charming

Sailor Moon, Volume 1 (first Kodansha translation): Manga, very obscure series about some teenage girl who fights monsters or whatever
