  1. YAY!!! I was looking forward to it!! :)

  2. I am ordering my copy right now! :).

    Any possibility you make an ebook version in the future? ;)

  3. You just made my day :)
    I can't wait to read it!

  4. Congrats! Can I ask where does the book ship from, which is the shipping method (and if it is trackable or not) and the expected delivery times to Italy? I was thinking about a Christmas gift.
    Thanks, Marco

  5. Marco, thanks for your support!
    The book ships from France or Germany, depending on the destination. The standard shipping method is not trackeable and you can check the expected delivery times to Italy at

    The delivery times may be longer than usual in this season, but I think that if you order now you will receive it several days before Christmas.

  6. Congratulations on this great achievement! I'm sure the book will be a great success. Your creativity and sense of humor serves as an inspiration to many :) Nice job, Alejandro!

  7. Thanks for your kind reply Alejandro (or should I call you Mox?)!
    I've just ordered a copy of your book.
    Just as a FYI, after the PayPal payment, you are directed to this page:
    But copy on this page reads:
    "Page not found
    Sorry, the page you were looking for in the blog mox's blog does not exist."
    Even if the payment was successfull on PayPal and I correctly received the PayPal email confirmation.
    I thought I would mention this to you so that you can create a corrrect sucessful.html page on your site.

  8. Hola!

    Me gustaría mucho comprar este libro, pero vivo en Alemania, y el sistema de PayPal solo permite compras de España (provincia, etc.)

    ¿Está disponible en Amazon u otro servicio internacional?

  9. The wait is finally over, how exciting. We are putting it on our blog right away. Mil felicidades -- we know how much work it is. :) Can't wait to get our copies.

  10. Marco, thanks a lot for pointing this out. It should be fixed now.

    Montserrat, gracias por tu interés. Otras personas han comprado el libro desde Alemania sin problemas. Te escribo un correo aparte, creo que sé lo que pasa. El sistema de pago de PayPal no es el más intuitivo (pero es el más seguro).

  11. ¡Qué tonta! No vi que se podía cambiar el país...
    Lo acabo de comprar sin ningún problema.
    Ahora a leer los comics... :-)

  12. Hi Alejandro:

    The sample pages are really, really hard to read.
    (Or are they in a rare dialect of Japanese?)

    I would scan them again with higher resolution.

    I hope you make a lot of money. My wife is already telling me that I should write a book too to finally make some real money ....

  13. Hi Steve,

    Thank you again for the awesome article you wrote for the book.

    Thanks for the tip, I changed the sample pages.

    If you make a lot of money with a book, please share your secret. My wife is already telling me that I should stop writing silly books to finally make some real money.

  14. Congratulations, Alejandro! I can't wait to put my hands on it and enjoy like a little child! :D


  15. Hi Alejandro,

    your book just arrived this morning, ¡muchas gracias! It will be a really great and funny Christmas present!

    Saludos desde Colonia

  16. Dear guys,I cannot describe my happiness this morning when i received the Book. This is great. A combination of wit, irony, sarcasm and good-will makes this book specially intereseting and its characters close to the reader. You have got to have your own copy. This is definitely something, we, the translators, needed, to laugh at our own lives and thus more easily overcome the awkward situations we face on a daily basis as freelancers.
    Congrats Alejandro/Mox

  17. Hi Alejandro/Mox,
