    The stories in it are all great " and the cause is worthy. It costs 6 US Dollars (sorry, 5.99) for 44 pages, and it is for charity. There is no reason not to buy it. Read Full Review

    -- WHEN THE NIGHT COMES: Love the art, the story makes more sense if you've read Elephantmen: Memoirs of the Future, but kind of spoils it if you haven't read that. -- THE NAKED TRUTH: A funny idea, but it loses some points for Shakey Kane's ugly attempt at drawing women. -- THE UMPTY GUN: Judge Dredd crossover! Pretty fun. -- GET NIKKEN: Strontium Dog Crossover, also fun! This suggests that Stronium Dog and Judge Dredd share a timeline with Elephantmen. That would be sweet! -- EBONY DREAMS: This one is boring and reuses the same drawing over and over again. -- OLD SOLDIERS: Excellent, touching, makes an important point that's relevant today. Best entry in this book and the art is excellent as well. -- MARINEMAN/HIP FLASK: Very short, only space for one thought really but it's fun. -- CHARLEY LOVES ROBOTS: This series is fun but if you're not familiar with it, you'll struggle to understand the context of what's going on in these two one-page shorts -- QUI TACET CONSENTIRE VIDETUR: One more page squeezed in on the back of the comic, it has a good message and puts out compelling content as best as it can in one page. The art is good. -- OVERALL: Some good stories here and also some disposable ones, the crossovers are worth owning for sure, just know what you are buying, it is a series of very short, short stories for charity.
