    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jul 27, 2010

    You could be forgiven for finding a tribute book like this to be a little fawning or sycophantic, and in truth it's hard to argue against such accusations without violating the premise of the work. It's safe to say that it's not reverential to a fault, however, and the book works as both a history lesson and a journalistic document of modern attitudes towards the venue. At the same time, the stories in this issue address universal themes, and the fact that it's rooted in a real time and place is an almost secondary extra. It's a comic that's definitely worth owning, and one that you can be certain is still going to be as relevant and enjoyable a decade from now as it is today. Read Full Review
