During our stop in Amsterdam, our gracious hosts took us on a stop to Lambiek, Europe's first comic store. And how cool is it when Chris Ware made your business cards. That's saying a lot considering the Netherlands and Belgium boast the largest concentration of cartoonists in the world.

Most of Europes books are large format, kind of what you see Asterix and Tin Tin published in. Those 12 X 15 hard cover books rather than the flimsy newsprint we have here. This place had a ton of crazy European books, and our host, Michiel Offerman gave me some of his personal recommendations.

This place also had just about everything Herge had laid his hands on, so, I had to part with many Euros on some of this stuff.
