The reason some may want to purchase this is to drool over the very detailed inking artwork done by the artists which is lost in the smaller version and obscured by the dialogue balloons. Personally I prefer this 'King-size' version as it allows me to examine in superb detail, the careful, intricate and excellent illustrations.
All American, a true blue hero, the Big Guy is determined to defeat the evil creature, save the innocents mutated into monsters and uphold decency standards all the while. The prose is a bit pretentious at times, and a bit old fashioned other times, but both reinforce the character of the Big Guy and heroic feel of the tale.
The only bad thing to say is that this two part series went nowhere as a comic, introducing dynamic characters but going no further, and, while the Fox Kids TV show (a mere 26 episodes) was a hilarious, spot on blend of tongue-in-cheek jabs at mechs, robotechnology, speculations on the future, Godzilla-inspired disasters and superhero comics, reading this book is a reminder that the Big Guy and Rusty still hasn't seen DVD release. Oh well, there's Youtube.
