Okay, so we don't have the signed and numbered edition, but I couldn't find it otherwise already on the site. But - it's so so so so so much fun. I couldn't stop reading. A boy and his best friend (who is a man-tiger) get caught up in a crazy adventure with a pirate girl and genie and an ulf (no, that's not a typo) with wings and a man-fox.

One of the most entertaining and accessable fantasy comics ever made, Tellos is a book that I recommend to people that don't even read comics. Mike's art is absolutely beautiful and the storytelling is top notch.
