This super funny and whimsical Pete the P.O.'D Postal Worker trade paperback was signed right in front of me by author Marcus P. Meleton Jr. at the San Diego Comic Con, I'm not sure if it was 2002 or 2003. He was a really, really nice guy, spilling over with creative exuberance. The book itself has just been peeked at inside, I've been careful not to bend the binding, but had to read some of it! And then it has been carefully stored since. There may be a very small amount of edge wear, but if so it's very small.
