this book is worth it for the b&w "Trial by Jury" shorts alone. Each one is a short story about a historical figure responsible for some atrocity or other, the historical facts of the case are laid out and the reader is asked to decide the verdict, innocent or guilty? A nice educational blending of history and comics which is sadly non existent nowadays. El Gaucho has the more lavish finished artwork but I really enjoyed Trial by Jury and it was a total surprise out of the blue. Reminded me of good old days of comics.
