It’s one of the basic risks with printing books. Every once in a while you receive a shipment from the printer, containing one or two copies that got dinged, or dented, or bashed, in transport.
Sometimes, damage occurs at conventions... Somebody bumps into a pile of books, and one of them falls off the table, and gets hurt.
What can ya do. Things happen.
Over the years of self-publishing my Wulf and Batsy graphic novels, I've accumulated a small box of these "Damaged Copies".
None of them are falling apart. None of them have pages falling out. All are, I suppose, perfectly "readable" copies. But, ALL of them have suffered some form of damage: Bent covers. Bashed, or cracked spines. Some have cover lamination peeling around the edges.
Nothing severe enough to warrant throwing them away... but I can't sell them at full price.
SO - If you are curious to read Wulf and Batsy, but hesitant to order a $20 or $25 volume over the internet... And if you don't mind a book with visible wear and tear, here's your chance to get Wulf and Batsy trade paperbacks at a serious discount.
I'm selling these "damaged copies" for $8 a pop. Plus shipping.
I think this is a pretty good deal. Both of these graphic novels are over 200 pages and normally sell for over $20.+
I've got 13 "damaged copies" of Wulf and Batsy Volume 1,
and 9 "damaged copies" of Wulf and Batsy Volume 2: Lustmord Nightmares".
Note there are two different listings here. Please make sure you are ordering the correct volume.
First come, first serve.
If you order one of these - I'm just gonna reach into the "damaged copies" box, and pull out the book on top of the pile and send it to you. I will make sure I pulled out the correct volume (1 or 2) that you ordered. But beyond that, the selection will be totally random. You might get a copy with only a barely-noticeable, bent corner, or slight crease in the cover. Or you might get one with a big, ugly, jagged crack up the spine. View the photos to see the range of damage to expect. Again, I promise none of the pages are falling out. They are all perfectly "readable" copies. They just look beat-to-hell.
No refunds and no returns. And no complaints! You know what you are getting here! These copies are cheap for a reason.
Some kind person, please give these poor damaged copies a home so I don't have to throw them out on the street!
Available to U.S. customers only. Sorry international friends - but the purpose of this sale is convenience - to get rid of damaged goods that are taking up space around here. These copies are not worth the trouble of dealing with customs and high shipping charges. Apologies if anyone is offended.
