From the Back Cover
"Intelligent and urgent mythology for the end of the millennium."—Neil Gaiman
Out of print for nearly 25 years and one of Rolling Stone's Top 50 Non-Super Hero graphic novels of all time, The Puma Blues is a series of interrelated stories that visualize life at the turn of the 21st century as a world of mutated animals, in which a lone government agent investigates the truth behind environmental degradation. Written by Stephen Murphy, the most prolific Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles author of all time, and illustrated by Michael Zulli, artist on many of the most popular Sandman comics, The Puma Blues unveils "a near-future world kissed by terrorist assaults…and the threat of ecological ruin. Zulli's wildlife art is utterly breathtaking."—The Comics Journal. Suggested for mature readers.
Exclusive Bonus Material:
• New forty-page ending by original creators
• Hard-to-find The Puma Blues mini-comic
• New Introduction by Dave Sim, legendary creator of Cerebus
• New Afterword by Stephen R. Bissette, acclaimed artist on Swamp Thing

The collection itself if pretty substantial with only a light (if any) reduction in size from original publication. My only complaint is that the first issue or so is ATROCIOUSLY lettered. I know that is how it was originally published but it was pretty distracting for the first bit.
Thank you to Dover for publishing this (and Jim Lawson's PALEO collection). They must have a soft spot for the old TMNT guys.
How does it hold up? Boy, it sure does. PUMA BLUES carries some powerful themes and the art (especially in the second half of the book) is astonishing.
Also worth the price of admission: the new afterword by scholar Stephen Bissette, who puts PUMA BLUES into greater context regarding its publication and its place in comics history.
Long time Puma Blues fan and bought the digital version from Amazon Comixology to get the ending I've been waiting on for 25 years.
BUT - It's called "The Complete Saga In One Volume" and it's not.
They did not re-print issue #20. They re-print the final page of the first story from issue #20 and the entire 4 page Alan Moore story, and... that's it.
I'm not sure why they chose to skip from #19 to #21 and then include those 5 pages after the end, but there you go.
p.s. None of the original covers either which were beautiful. :(
All in all, not the complete experience it's advertised as.
