Already bought it from here, and many thanks for introducing it to me.

And hurray for the Harvey Award! The book richly deserves it. (Of course, I also thought the Astro Boy movie deserved an Oscar, or at least should have been nominated for one. Liked it more than the last 2 Pixars, frankly. What a moving, endearing unpretentious little film. So happy I have it on DVD).
