Interesting on the reviews, no one has a bad word to say about this. It's about 3 inches thick & is a wonderful collection of the first set of stories. The artwork is breathtaking - if you don't know comics, this is a great place to start.
The content & story are gritty & realistic - this is no kids comic.
If you have seen the TV series, you'll recognise the characters but the story takes some different & more interesting turns.
It looks like it will take you ages but once you get into it, you'll race through it.
Easily the best value comic compendium out there. Try but watch the letterbox as this book is a beast!
