If you're a fan of either John JR or SR -- and really, any comic freader should be a fan of both -- this is a great book to get. It features a good sized essay that goes over the careers of both legends and features a lot of nice artwork to boot.

I had to deduct a star though for the atrocious graphic design. This doesn't look like it was done by an experienced professional... all of the interviews are done in an italic serif-font, so it's pretty ugly to look at page-after-page and there's this unneccessary drop shadow under almost every piece of art (which sometimes butts up right against the text... yikes).

Still, if you're here for the content, you won't be disappointed -- both artists are interviewed at length about their careers, the development of their art styles, their experiences within the comics industry, and much more. These two are pretty much locks for the all-time top twenty comic artists ever and are in the top ten for Marvel, for sure.

There's a lot of books that display the art far better but as far as hearing from the artists, this is top notch. You need to get this.
