Today, I bought, for my OH to give me for Christmas, 8) two Graphic books. The Colour Of Magic & The Light Fantastic, two books in one, hardback. The other is the paperback edition of Guards, Guards.

They look as if they'll be great fun, but I'll not read them yet, as OH has to pack them in Christmas paper for me, I'll open & read them on Christmas Day, while he is cooking our meal. :laugh: :laugh:

Has anyone else got any & how many have they published? I want more. :laugh: :laugh:

He always cooks Christmas dinner, Dotsie, as he doesn't like it burnt or under cooked :laugh:
As to presents, well he never buys any, I have to get everyone of them, original Scrooge :laugh: , so, I also get my own with the plastic & what I want for me as well :laugh: It's only when he checks the statement he says"How much did you spend! o_O: o_O: !" :laugh:

Hmmm... I'd call them illustrated novels rather than graphic ones. o_O

I have now got the paperback edition of The Last Hero. It is a smaller book than the hardback & easier to read, not so heavy, in weight, I mean :laugh: Another present to me from OH. He is really gonna regret saying 'buy what you want', to me. :laugh:

Thanks Tony - that was the words I was looking for but couldn't extract from my scrambled mind.

I have all three original graphic novels and consider them an essential for any DW fan...of course I'd say that though.
