I'm 10 pages into this book and I LOVE IT!!!!! Used to collect comics in my teens - stopped in '86 but still have a curiosity about it - this book is fun and fantastic! If you've ever read comics or Manga you'll get into this - the visual language is great and there are some humorous references. Well done Tim Leong!
