Borders comic book displays and George Pelecanos
I was at Borders in Bailey's Cross Roads, VA for George Pelecanos's talk about his new book The Turnaround and I also took some pictures of clever parts of their comic book displays. Also note that they have the Masters of Comic Art catalogue for $10 and Jeff Danziger's last book for $3. I paid full price for both. They've also got a DC Superheroes How to Draw Kit for $4.
A 4-sided stand, cleverly arranged.
"Indescribable? Insatiable? No, Incredible" Hulk books.
"Holy comic books, Batman!"
"Ozzy would be proud" an Iron Man movie reference.
"Best underoos ever." Poor Spider-Man.
Naruto manga stand from Viz.
"Eat your fruits and vegetables" Fruitbasket. I haven't read that yet - any good?
"Sink your teeth in" to Vampire Hunter D.
