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Years & Still Kicking: Slightly less massive hardcover, slightly scuffed, anniversary compilation (now itself 20 years out of date), lots of favorite strips, making-of details, behind-the-scenes sketches, etc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

Sailor Moon dolls & merchandise giveaway

Giving away a bunch of Sailor Moon dolls and figures! I’m gearing up to move cross-country (for the second time), so I’m trying to downsize.

Here’s who I have:

…You can tell I wasn’t exactly a dedicated collector, huh.

See your favorite character here? Need one more figure to round off a set? Just feel like some subset of these will make your life brighter? They’re all free to whoever calls dibs on them first.

(All I ask is that you cover the cost of shipping.)

Chibi figures: Serenity, Endymion, Naru, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, Usagi, Sailor Moon. Some are a bit scuffed, but they’re all really adorable.

US Bandai 6″ dolls: Princess Serenity, Sailor Chibi-moon (wand & Luna-P), Sailor Neptune (wand & mirror), Sailor Pluto (wand & Garnet Rod), Sailor Moon.

Japanese plastic figures: Sailors Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Moon, and Mercury. Unfortunately, Jupiter’s left arm has not been seen for more than 10 years. I might still have the original packaging for these five in a drawer somewhere — let me know if you’re interested and I’ll try to dig them up.

Pin set: Sailor Moon face, Season 1 brooch. These are actually good as new! Never removed from the packaging.

ETA: Almost everything from the original post is claimed! So I hastily pulled together the rest of what I have around the house, and here it is…

giveaway-sm2.png

Wallscrolls – Inner Senshi, blue background and pink background. As long as you don’t mind them being a bit wrinkled.

Lunch box – Fair warning, this is very scuffed. I used it for the intended purpose for at least a year in middle school.

Trading Cards – Inner Senshi, first-season forms. Take the set!

Plastic figure – she’s not from Sailor Moon, she’s a lone item from Victorian Romance Emma who snuck in. Feel free to claim her, though.

Sailor Chibimoon poster – Not shown because it’s actually wrapped up somewhere well-packed. It’s the Eternal Chibimoon pose from the cover of the manga rerelease, and it’s a little smaller than the wallscrolls.

Package backing – in the upper right. I fully expect to end up recycling them, but hey, maybe someone wants a set of cute bookmarks.

Notepads – Starlights/Inners, Super Moon, and Super/Eternal Inners.

Comment with whoever you’re interested in!

(…and to the people saying “everything”, you gotta be more specific. Sorry I didn’t say that upfront. The problem with only doing this once every 5 years is that I’m not great at being organized about it.)

You can send your shipping address by email, sailorptah at yahoo dot com.

I’m also giving away a bunch of books, so take a look through those while you’re here!

Anime Figurines Giveaway – Sailor Moon, Hellsing, Emma

Doing a giveaway from my anime figurine collection. Most of these belong to ensembles that I’m never going to complete — so maybe they can help complete yours.

Everything’s in good condition, and it’s all free. You just give me a shipping address (you can do that by email or PM), and a couple bucks for postage/packing.

toys-sm

Sailor Moon: Adorable chibi plastic figures of Serenity, Endymion, Usagi, Naru, Sailor Jupiter (her tiara comes with a little antenna), and Sailor Mars. They’re a little wobbly when you stand them up, but do fine if you lean them against something.

toys-girls

Sailor Moon: Black Lady, sultry pose, really lovely detail for molded plastic. CLAIMED!

Victorian Romance Emma: Two of Hakim’s companions, the same model, in two color variations. Each comes with her own (plastic) pillow.

toys-hs

Hellsing: Mini-figures of Jan Valentine (the guns are separate pieces!) and Walter Dornez (wearing, inexplicably, jeans). And a huge poseable figure of Alexander Anderson. Comes with two extra hands, and two bayonets from his infinite supply. CLAIMED!
