Looked through several hundred booths at this year’s collector’s fair to find this little guy. Probably a bottle cork figure, though with the cork missing. Nice piece though, which I hadn’t seen before.

Today’s find in the mail bag: the first Swedish comics collection I have bought through a Crowdsourcing effort: Zak & Ting by Yvette Gustafsson. It’ll be interesting to see if this catches on in a big way in the Swedish comics culture.

I really need to get myself a bigger cabinet …
