ORIGINAL ULTRA Q STORYBOARD!
Waaaaay too cool.
As you might imagine, it's already been bid up into the realm of Serious Coin, with days to go.
Near as I can tell, this must've been for episode 13; one of the illos seems to be showing His Crustiness standing near the dam. The cover seems to note "Ultra Q 19", so I'm not sure what that's about; a Google translation of the auction's brief description (below) gives me little, other than to tell me of the item's "sallowness", and that someone named "Hotchkiss" (?!) is involved.
What if Garamon's last name is Hotchkiss?
"Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome our favorite biomechanical meteorite monster, your friend and mine, Mr. Gary Hotchkiss!"
UPDATE: August checks in:
"I was going to point this out to you, but you already saw it. But,
that Google translation sucks. Here's a real translation:
"Now, here's an original piece, a picture continuity (storyboard)
book. It is inscribed by the owner, and as you can see, there are
minor blotches and the paper has yellowed. It is stapler-bound. There is no writing on any of the 12 pages, and there are no cuts or missing pages. Printed in blue ink."
BTW, "Hotchkiss" is the Japanese term for "Stapler."
Hope this helps!"
It sure does, dude!Many thanks!
