It's nice to not be the only freak destroying comics.
(I make collectors cry. "No collectible comics were harmed in the making of this purse.")
Nice job. I agree with you though. I've carried a few with the shoulder strap and a few with the wrist strap. They make a better clutch than a "purse".
A few coats with a nice sealer makes them a little more durable too, just an FYI.
