Breath taking work. Has some reads in there and shots love it. Worth owning for any Tunner fan that's been there from start to finish.
Some people have mentioned that its disappointing that none of Michael's Fathom work that he did while he was at Top Cow isn't included in this book, and while I agree that its a shame that none of that Fathom work could be included in this book, you ultimately can't hold that against Top Cow as Top Cow simply doesnt own the rights to that artwork anymore. For those that are unaware, Michael left Top Cow and created Aspen comics in 2003 and since Michael created Fathom, he felt that the rights should belong to him. Top Cow disagreed and felt that the rights to Fathom should remain with Top Cow since Michael was working for Top Cow at the time he created Fathom. It was a fairly bitter battle, one that ultimatey landed the 2 parties in court. The courts eventually ruled in Michael's favor and the intellectual property rights involving Fathom wound up with Michael and his company Aspen Comics. So again, as disappoiting as it is that none of that artwork could be included here, its was simply out of Top Cow's hands and thus its unfair to hold that against them with this release.
The only thing that really dissapointed me regarding this book was the fact that no hard cover version was ever offered. I am definitely a hard cover person when it comes to books, including graphic novels. If I have an option between a hard cover or soft cover, I'm taking hard cover 100% of the time, regardless of the higher price and it was definitely a bit disappointing that Top Cow didn't offer a hard cover version for this book. Still, that being said, its still a great book and a must buy for serious Michael Turner fans.
Bottom line - If your a fan of Michael Turner, a fan of Top Cow, or even just a fan of the bad girl style comic art that Michael helped make so popular in the early 2000's, you should consider this a must buy. All in all, Top Cow just did a great job on this one!
