Check out this weird Betty & Me #7 that I got from a German lady at a yard sale. It is the regular comic, English language (it says in the indica "Published by Close-Up, don't know if that's normal) but it is wrapped with a stiff brown paper and bound together with string. Even odder are the two separate store stamps that marked in different places in the book.

One says:
New Empire Book Stall
46, Gowalla Tank Road, Bombay (either 24 or 26)

and the other:
India Book House
22; Bhulabhai Desai Road,
Bombay - 26

Obviously it's from India but what could be the story behind it.

Here are the pics!

When you shop at Hall of Heroes you can expect:

Fantastic Customer Service
Quality Comics at Reasonable Prices

I won't say that I have the most of this or that but I will say that I offer a diverse selection of comics from the earliest days of publishing right up until the most recent releases. In addition to the Big 2 (Marvel and DC) hundreds of smaller publishers are represented in my Inventory. Browse through my Store Shelves to find hidden gems that you may have forgotten about. Scans provided upon request and I have an "Open Door" communication policy. Thank you all for your continued support!

Well looks like a betty and me #7 someone rebound.

My guess is it was rebound for protection for a library or public reader book (ie coffee house or something)

Hah, interesting find. Funny that the store stamp is in English, I bet the store was at/near a military base of some sort. If you come across the German lady again you can ask if her husband was stationed there.
