An immensely high-quality introduction to the family in 30 minutes or less,
This review is from: The Addams Family: An Evilution (Hardcover)
For a change I actually bought this book with my own money. Am I glad I did.... mostly.
So on the positive side this book is exceptionally high quality printing. The pages are good heavy stock and the printing is exceptional. Even the dust jacket is expertly executed though the font chosen for the title is a bit cheesy.
The negative comes because I just expected there to be more of it. This isn't a cheap book by any means and I was done with it in the span of 30 minutes or so. Of the 221 pages in this book about 20 of them are printed material, such as the background for each character or the book's introduction, and the rest are full-page reprints of the original comics. Maybe this is all there actually *IS* to be printed but it felt like there had to be more. I honestly don't know if there *IS* more or not but it just doesn't feel like everything.
In summary, this is a great book in many ways but it leaves me wanting something else. More back-story, more comics, more anything. It's on the bloody edge of being worth what I paid for it.
