In spite of our seemingly endless busy schedule, there are a few things we definitely make time for.
One of them is the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale. Each year, it's held at the McKinley High School Cafeteria and boxes and boxes of books are hauled to the event - priced for quick sale.
Doors opened to the public on Saturday and Scott and I were queued up in line to get in about 30 minutes before opening. He made a bee-line to the comics section while I head straight to the foreign language area. In past years, we've picked up original issues of long out-of-print comics at rock bottom prices, great reference books, art books, and some favorites in hard cover.
This is our haul from our first visit on Saturday - Day 2. (We went back later that evening to pick up some things I found out I missed out on.)
Most of my haul consisted of old J-pop and anime CDs - Shizuka Kudo, Yuki Saitou, Kumi Miyasato, Chisato Moritaka, Project A-ko, Tonari no Totoro, Megazone 23... (and a few others not photographed.)
Scott picked up a number of Star Wars comics and memorabilia, an old 1st printing of the Schulz' "Happiness is a Warm Puppy", Cerebus' High Society (for $3!), Pogo, and a few other miscellaneous titles. (One being a comic I helped color backgrounds for back in the day~)
The rest of my haul is pretty boring - just reference books for inspiration and ideas. ^^
I'm sure we'll be back later this week to search for any other hidden treasure~ ^^
Charming, yes? :D
For a little background, Jared is an abominable snowman who speaks simply and loves his slushies. Find out more about Jared and his adventures in The Front and Tales of The Front, by awesome cartoonist and podcaster extraordinaire, Jerzy Drozd.
This comic was a contribution for the Big Illustration Party Time Podcast benefit auction to help restore their audio equipment. So great art all auctioned for a great cause~ :D
