Yep! It's an Uncle Scrooge volume. I already have it sitting in my shopping cart, waiting for the expected price drop. Then…"
"I bought all The Spirit anyway, Richard, because it was one of those things I always heard about but never saw as a budding comics collector. (This was pre-Internet of course.) So when it came out, I jumped on it. And, yes, some years were better…"
