Review: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2019 [Day 1] (February 22, 2019)

Clockwise: A big fire somewhere in Makati caused a huge traffic jam on our way to The World Trade Center.  Hope those affected are safe. | The traditional family photo. | Just some of the great book finds that I saw in the modest Graphic Novel section of The Big Bad Wolf Sale.

The Mark of a Tradition

After making it to Big Bad Wolf Book Sale for the third year in a row, I guess my family and I can now confidently label the annual event as a family tradition.  Since 2017, we have made it a point to grace The World Trade Center in Pasay City–site of the Big Bad Wolf Sale–on sale’s first day.

I am a big believer in the saying, “The early bird catches the worm,” and have always felt more confident in our chances of scoring great book finds if we made it a point to come on opening day.

My BBWS 2019 Haul

To be fair, I didn’t go into this year’s sale blind as some members of the Facebook groups that I am a part of went to the VIP pre-event sale held the day before.  The aforementioned FB group members took several photos of all the graphic novels on display which made it easier for me to zero in on the books that I was interested in.

When I arrived at The World Trade Center this afternoon (5:10 pm), all of the books that I wanted were still on the tables with the exception of Graphic Ink: The DC Comics Art of Frank Quitely (2014). Man, I really wanted that one.

So, this is what I ended up getting:

  • Bong Redila’s Melag (2016)
  • Vertigo’s Survivors Club [Lauren Beukes] (2016)
  • Empress Book One [Stuart Immonen and Mark Millar] (2017)
  • Chuck Palahniuk’s Choke (2001)
  • Chuck Palahniuk’s Pygmy (2009)
  • Chuck Palahniuk’s Legacy: An Off-Color Novella For You To Color (2017)

The Big Bad Wolf Sale 2019 is a 24-hour event that will run for 10-days (February 22 to March 4, 2019)
