This Futurama book is the first trade I bought from the bargain pile of NBS. It's a second-hand book that I found in the SALE pile outside the store a few years ago. It was at one time the property of a library abroad, based on the sticker on the spine and the stamps inside the book. I'm guessing, once upon a time, this lived it's life as a paperback at that library, and that it was just hardbound to minimize wear.
I got it for only Php 99.00. What a steal!
