Paneltopanel.net is offering a signed edition of Jaime Hernandez's THE EDUCATION OF HOPEY GLASS. Not only do they come with an exclusive bookplate, but everyone who purchases a copy before June 1 is entered in a drawing to win the bookplate's original art. Runner-up gets a complete set of L&R Vol. II #1-20. Not bad at all.
