Jack Davis BCGF-Weekend Book Now An Actual Rarity

I'm not sure why this amuses me, but it does. The Fantagraphics Jack Davis book had a cover-warping problem (I can attest to that), so they want back to press on an altered edition. That edition should be out very soon, after having been delayed a bit. The amusing part is that a new edition makes the version they released to adoring audiences at The Strand the Thursday before the Brooklyn Comics And Graphics Festival and the festival itself actual rarities, which doesn't happen a lot in the world of alternative comics publishing. If you combine this with rumors of huge prices already being bandied about for purchase of that new IDW Wally Wood Artist's Edition, it's like the EC stable has suddenly and once again become the hottest thing in comics. That's all right with me.
