    Just a question, I have been waiting on the Peyo Book, life and times of a Marvelous Story teller. The local comic shop said it would be out, but so far, nothing. :/ Is it actually in the US now???

  2. NBM NBM says:

    It is indeed and Diamond was shipped their quantity for comics stores on the 8th of May which means it will be in stores… tomorrow! Diamond confirms that, in fact.
