It's a big book at 8 1/2 inches x 11 inches and well worth the money. Some colour but mainly black and white.

It's not that dirty... mainly "R" rated levels of content, a lot of innuendo, and a few more risque pieces. This lack of hardcore content may be a drawback for some, but they can find their filth elsewhere.
This is a collection of sketches, fine art, and doodles done by the minds behind Batman, Superman, Wonderwoman, and even sunday morning strips like Family Circus's Bill Keane. It's a very unique gift for those that love comics.
Bottom line: She loved it, and I'm glad I bought it. Check it out!
It's a tricky topic and I can see how it could easily have been mishandled. Make it too dirty and people are offended. Make it too clean and they're disappointed. I think Craig has achieve the perfect balance of showing the work of familiar cartoonists whom we know from the funny pages and the comic books, and giving us just a peek at what they draw for themselves in their private moments.
Art schools are full of nude models in life drawing classes, so it should come as no surprise that most artists have drawn an unclad female at one time or another. The fun is in seeing drawings like this from the pen of well-known cartoonists who specialize in family-friendly material. It's a novelty that in no way detracts from their vast body of work but shows them as rather human.
I also have to mention the beautiful production. You don't usually find such high-quality paper and printing in a book at this price point. The cover alone is impressive, gorgeously printed with embossing and spot varnish. A real art book kind of treatment, nicely designed and executed.
I'm looking forward to the next volume!
The title is, like many books, misleading. I expected a book not quite so "clean".
