Back in the early days, we self-published all our comics in these tidy little bound volumes. This 145+ page Vol IX., Soured on Beer and Given to Claims, containing all strips from 9/2006 - 5/2007, also features a five-page screenplay in which Pat and Rod try to enjoy a fancy restaurant dinner together. These particular MINT ORIGINAL CONDITION editions of Volume Nine were printed before 2009 and stored sealed in plastic. There are only a dozen of these left anywhere that I know of. Please do not delay in ordering if interested. Please indicate in the Notes field if you would like your copy signed.
