As soon as Jeff Lemire’s excellent graphic novel The Collected Essex County became one of the 5 finalists for the Canada Reads competition, it sold out. Everywhere. Instantly.
Now, we’ve had the hardcover edition in stock consistently, but even we were sold out of the softcover… until now!
We’re pleased to be able to say that we’ve secured a few dozen copies of the softcover Collected Essex County, and they’re currently available for sale on the first floor of The Beguiling. To our knowledge, we’re one of the only stores that has the book in stock right now, and it isn’t expected that the new printing will reach stores until mid January.
So if you’ve been anxiously searching for a soft cover, if you’re looking for another copy as a gift, or you just want to see what all the fuss is about, we currently have copies in stock… but we will almost assuredly sell out before Christmas. Don’t dawdle! Come pick up your copy today.
