The Baby-Sitters Club First Edition #8 & #18
Boy Crazy Stacey and Stacey's Mistake first came out as Apple Paperbacks in 1987 and 1988 respectively. These have been well loved by me, my sister, and my cousins, so their condition is acceptable or perhaps even good. They both have slight creases on the cover and a little wear on the spines. Boy Crazy Stacey's cover has a small tear. This is factored into the price, which includes First Class shipping.
Autobiography of Mark Twain vol. 1

A sweet historical romance by Karen Finnigan, w/a Karen Lockwood, this is an early Diamond Homespun edition in mint condition.

Price includes First Class shipping.

Martin Mystery #1-6
Enjoy the full set produced by Dark Horse and Bonelli Comics. These books helped introduce my kids to adventure and science fiction literature, not to mention longer form comics. They are all in fine condition, though the faint root beer stain on the back pages of volume 1 is accounted for in the low price, which includes Priority Mail two day shipping.
Tiger on the Storm, by Valerie Finnigan, illustrated by Richard O’Hara, chronicles the adventures of the US Air Force 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing, aka the Flying Tigers, in the first Iraq war. Adapted from the war journal of then wing commander Colonel David Sawyer at his family’s request, the book provides an insider look at the war and at aviation history – when the A-10 Thunderbolts were first put to the test in combat.
This miniseries will make an excellent gift for people who appreciate some military and aviation history in their comic books.
