Buy Willie, Get Joe For Free

You know that big, two-volume hardcover boxed set of Willie Willie and Joe boxed set& Joe you’ve been lusting after? The one with all those great World War II cartoons by Bill Mauldin, the very same cartoonist that Snoopy used to quaff root beers with each Veterans’ Day? And you look at the $65 cover price and muttered to yourself “someday, someday” in that same wistful tone you used while saying the same thing about that cute cheery blond in fourth grade?

Well, that someday is today. No, not for the blond; that day shall never come, I’m afraid. But you can get Willie & Joe for 60% off at the moment.
