Numpang baca di rak buku impor Gramedia Plangi. Bukunya udah keriting, tanpa sampul, n biar dikorting juga masih di atas dua ratus rebu... Baca di tempat ajalah...

jadi inget baca di toko buku, sampai ditaruh di lantai biar puas ngeliat ilustrasi versi film-nya hehe

oh iya yg komik masih blum disentuh ya mas tomo, tapi pasti kembali padamu :p
I loved the comic, and the movie. So this is the movie artbook.
