So I'm looking through a certain publisher's back catalogue, and I come across this book:
It took me a while to process what I was looking at. Is that really an image of a bottomless woman with enormous breasts and a failing bikini, squirting out an orbiting ring of biliously off-colour breast milk? Well, yes it is. Surely some hideously misguided Japanese action figure?*
No. It's a statue that last sold at Christie's for nearly half a million dollars.
And I thought some book collectors were odd.
*If you've been lucky enough to never have seen such things in the women-loathing hellholes that are the average comics shops, a visit to here, here or here will give you some idea of the sort of thing I'm talking about. Once seen, never unseen, however.
