Played in Toronto Canada tonight, and paid a visit to The Beguiling before the show, famous comic book shop... it's the local comic shop that appears in lots of issues of stuff by Joe Matt, Chester Brown and Seth, the kings of Canadian comics. We hadn't been to the Beguiling in about ten years, it looks crazier than I remember it, with piles of comics and collections and original art everywhere, totally awesome and crazy place. Jack stumbled on a bag full of the complete run of Chester Brown's Yummy Fur comic, all 32 issues in one bag, total 90$ which is not much more than what the original cover price was in the 80s/90s for these issues, and I think it would be hard to track them all down anyway. So I bought it! A bit of a crazy expenditure, to drop 90 bucks on a bag of comic books, but it was such a cool find I couldn't resist. Some of the stuff in those issues has never been reprinted, and other stuff in those issues like Ed The Happy Clown has been reprinted but the reprints are out of print... plus all the original cover art for those Yummy Fur issues is totally weird and great. I want to go home and hang all 32 of them up on the wall of my room!

Wow score, you'd be hard pressed getting #1 for under $15 these days, I reckon. And for some reason #9, I think it is, goes for silly money every time I've seen it for sale online. I'd love to visit The Beguiling. There's an old David Collier strip in Zero Zero about him talking to the old owner about "culture then vs. culture now" yadda yadda...I love Collier so I pretty much think anything he does is great!
