"The Spitzner Museum's Wax Woman" Comicbook!
Morbid Anatomy reader Heather Whiteside alerted me to the existence of a comic book called "The Spitzner Museum's Wax Woman," by Francoise Riviere and Andreas Martens. She found out about it in the 2001 "Taboo" Issue of Heavy Metal Magazine.
I just purchased a copy of the magazine, but I am dying to find a copy of the original comic book. If anyone has any leads on where to find one and could point me in the right direction, I would be most grateful. Further, the kind folks at Kikkerland Design have offered to help me on my quest, by donating an Anatomical Eye 3-D Puzzle to any person who can help me acquire a copy.
