It's a very thick book at 368 pages with hardcover. The reproduction is fantastic. I don't understand why Robin was chosen to show his crotch on the cover though as there are other good cover choices in the book. It bemused me when I first saw the cover.
The bulk is filled with comics that Frank Quitely has created since 1995. It starts with the lesser know titles and perhaps more underground comics, such as stories about aliens and Area 51, Salvador Dali and other peculiar stories. After that it's followed by more mainstream titles such as for Batman and The Sandman: Endless Nights.
Some of the splash pages and covers are for Flex Mentallo, Books of Magick, We3, All-star Superman, Batman and Robin and a handful of others.
It's a good collection for Frank Quitely fans who want to collect the older stories, or catch up with what they have missed.
The full list of stories included are:
The Physicist and the Flying Saucers
A Visit With the Hanging Judge
The Heroic Revenge Fantasy
The Elephant Man
Romancing the Stone
The Cottingsley Fairy Photos
Your Special Day
Pavel Navrotsky's Pig Pen
St. Polycarp: The Cult of Saints
Batman: Scottish Connection
Batman Reborn Part One: Domino Effect
Batman Reborn Part Two: The Circus of Strange
Batman Reborn Part Three: Mommy Made of Nails
Time and the Batman: Today
There's not much text talking about the background of the work and even the afterword by Frank Quitely is just a one page essay which is too short for the amount of work shown in the book. This would be a letdown for those looking to learn more about him.
Overall for the price of the book, if you like Frank Quitely comics, it's quite worth the purchase.
(See more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
This book along with We3, Flex Mentallo, All Star Superman, New X-Men, and JLA Earth 2 all deserve a spot on your bookshelf.
In a handsome volume too.
