Nguyen's art is absolutely gorgeous, while I agree with the other review wishing it was in a larger format, that's not up to the publisher (Image), the creators have to pay for the format their work gets published in, larger format costs them more money. But I'm very pleased with the size it is, the water colors are magnificent, character designs are incredible, and the scenery is jaw dropping.
If you like comics by Lemire, or sci-fi stories about sentient A.I., or are a fan of beautiful artwork, I recommend this book.
Are the oversized deluxe additions reserved solely for works by Rick Remender? I mean, sure, both Scalera's and Tocchini's busy artwork should probably be seen in a larger format. But why does Michael Lark get the short end of the stick? His work on Lazarus Book 1 (Lazarus Hc) is exquisite, some of the best of his illustrious career. And yet both volumes of Lazarus are only 7x11 inches in size.
While that's certainly a shame, IT'S AN ABSOLUTE TRAVESTY that Dustin Nguyen's sumptuous water colors are presented merely in a 7x11 format. It's a crime! I get that it's only a one-inch difference, but honestly, what's the REASONING BEHIND IT? IT'S ILLOGICAL! IT MAKES NO SENSE! And really, it's just plain annoying as hell, to be perfectly frank. His paintings in this book are the most beautiful art that I've seen in a comic book in quite some time. (Off the top of my head, I have trouble thinking of anything comparable. Maybe Alex Ross.) If anything, it should be presented in an Absolute Edition size rendering.
So somebody over at Image please explain to me the rationale behind that decision.
