Climbing Comic book; Intro to gym climbing

I still have a few copies of Betty and the Silver Spider, subtitled 'or welcome to gym climbing', a hilarious comic book from my brother's publishing company http://www.sharpendbooks.com/.
With so many folks here new to climbing, and with books in English hard to come by in Korea (and postage being a bit steep), I brought back a few last summer. . . If you are learning to climb in Korea, and want to be sure you understand the knots, belaying, etc, BatSS is in English and illustrated. It also goes over technique, etiquette, terms and climber slang! Written by Craig Leubben (who recently wrote the Mountaineers Press's climbing instructional guide, and illustrated by Jeremy Collins, best known perhaps for his magazine work. You can check it out on the website. It is also hilarious for the established climber, who will get all the inside jokes and curious details in Jeremy's illustrations.
Retails for $12.95, but the special Korean price is W12,000.
Also, if anyone is interested in the Women of Climbing 2006 calendar (or anything else from Sharpend Publishing), but doesn't want to pay postage to Korea, let me know and I'll ask my bro to put it in my Winter/Christmas package. . .
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!
