I've always had a hard time looking for appropriate gifts for my hubby. Even when we were still dating, I'd always end up giving him something he won't use. Oh, he appreciates everything I give (its the thought that counts anyway, right?), but I knew I always just missed the mark.
So last March, after aimlessly walking around Mall of Asia, I chanced upon The Death of Superman graphic novel. I oohed and aahhhed. Inspiration came and I knew instantly it was what he would love.
When his birthday came, my gift, so lovingly wrapped and tied with string, I gave with a big smile on my face. Oh he loved it all right! Couldn't wait to read it. Mentioned his friend had all 3 books....
3 books? I only saw one!!! Apparrently this graphic novel came in a 3-part series!!! Argghh!!!!
And this is why I am anxiously waiting Fully Booked's Free Comic Book day on May 22, 2010.
Aside from giving away free comic books (starts at 10 a.m. so better be there really early!), all graphic novels will be 20% off (cash basis only).
Maybe i'll get it right this time. And so the quest continues... =)
