Just a short reminder, tonight from 6-8pm at New York's Center for Book Arts is the opening reception of "Garo Manga, 1964-1973". The reception is free, and will feature "every issue of Garo, from its first issue in September 1964 to its 120th issue in December 1973." A catalogue of the exhibit will also be on sale in person (UPDATE: And is now available via their online store.)

Have fun, New York people! If you happen to attend and sneak some photos of the event and exhibit, lemme know how it went over email at samehatATgmailDOTcom.

I'll go there and steal the 1st issue.
I bet it's rare now.
Is it?

So wish I could go to this.

@anon: haha, well.... I think it's rare but not like, SUPER collectible. I think you could probably snag it for under $200 in Japan (someone correct me if I'm wrong there).

Most old issues of Garo from the 70s and 80s I saw (in decent but not great condition) sold for like $4-10 bucks at used book shops.

If you do swipe it, send me some scans okay?

@jimpac: you & me both, brother
