Because of slackery on my part there is only one measly post on here so far mentioning my love of the comic Check Please…..dont let the lack of posts fool you – if you hung out at my tumblr you would understand just how enamoured I am. I absolutely love it!!!!
I just missed out on backing Ngozi Ukazu’s first kickstarter but I have backed the 2nd and third. The kickstarters were to allow Ngozi, the author, to self publish comics of each year of the comic (there will be 4 years in total – reflecting the main character Bitty’s college experience).
So I already have the self published books – both paperback and hardback of year 1 and 2, and will also be getting a hardback of year 3 when that fulfilment happens. 😀
Anyways so it was announced an actual publisher wanted to work with Ngozi to do an official book which is fricking awesome. I am so glad for her – she has worked so hard creating this amazing comic but also working hard to create a community around CP.
I had originally placed a preorder for this on Book Depository but for some reason they refunded me so I ended up having to choose some other option to get this book.
I really wanted the hardback but all aussie online retailers said I would have to wait weeks to get the hardback so on release day I called Kinokuniya while I was at work and asked if they had any of the paperbacks in stock and they did! They put one aside for me and it was my half day so I left work and immediately marched to Kino to get it!!!
The book covers years one and two, which i didnt realise so I literally squarked when I saw THE KISS at the end………I died when i first saw that update online – guys you dont even know!!!!!!
Anyways – so ANOTHER book of this awesome comic to add to my shelves. haha!
Quote from my original post on insta:
My precious. Didnt want to wait for 3 weeks for delivery of the hardback by an aussie online retailer so hit up Kino and got the paperback. Minor fangirl noises at seeing ‘the kiss’ even tho ive seen it a hundred times.and haha this is the 3rd printed version i have of year 1 events…i also have paper and hardback versions of the kickstarter books. @ngoziu #checkplease #ngoziukazu #fangirlpurchases #latergram
