collection is not only incredibly well written and illustrated,
but the presentation is also first rate. Titan are, again,
spoiling us with a hardback edition with better than average
also a really interesting addition to this collection. At
the back of the book there is a run down on who the artist
modelled each character on. Once you've read this, it's worth
flicking through the collection again and you'll see it in
a whole new light. For example, Ralph Dibney was based on
Danny Kaye and John Cleese was the model for Shining Knight.
The writer and artist also discuss this collection in a long
essay, broken down into easily digestible segments.
serious comics collector should be without a copy of this.
