Here’s some of the cool stuff I got for my birthday.  Joe Madureira’s Battle Cashers Anthology, Erich Sokol’s Playboy Cartoons and Moebius’ new Arzak comic.  All these books are big and oversized (9″x12″ +). Sokol and Moebius from Stuart Ng Books and Battle Chasers off Amazon for $57 (regular price is $100).

The Battle Chasers Anthology is basically just like the DC “Abosolute” editions.  It’s big and oversize with nice glossy paper and comes in a slipcase.  It contains basically everything that was ever created for the series: all 9 issues, the Frazetta magazine short, both Adam Warren shorts, 7 pages of art from the unfinished issue #10, all the regular/variant covers and pinups for the series, a lot of developmental and convention sketches, plus a fold-out poster.

And lastly, something I’ve wanted for years.  The Headpiece to the Staff of Ra!  It’s really an awesome replica of the original from Acme Artifacts.  Made out of metal and has some good weight to it.
