Description

As you can see this is an (almost) one of a kind. This is 1 of 11 edition. There will be an entire article up shortly in our News, and this will be added to as well. Please contact directly for more information.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the only copy you will ever find for sale.

(Is it ‘worth’ listed price? Two things: 1 – all ‘resold’ items on Emporium Purgatorio are negotiable, meaning if you have a good home for the comics then that counts towards purchase 🙂 2 – we are not in ANY hurry to sell this. Just like our Promethea lot, this will take a special buyer regardless of the offer. This is too important to history.

Special thank you to Ewan Brownlow, for everything 🙂

Special thank you to the good people at Grand Comics Database for their help in organizing the contents of Food For Thought (this information was incomplete, but EmpPurg is adding to that both here and on the GCD).
