Where to buy?
I came across my copy in the Bristol branch of Forbidden Planet so I have not much idea where else to get it. I guess British fans can actually order it from local comic stores. Alternatively, it is mentioned that this book is catalouged in the British Public Library... hmmm... oh well. No difference from the US edition apart from cover art, except that I like the petit, convenient size better.
