All that being said, I have seen this book discounted heavily on multiple occasions. I don't think Amazon allows people to post the prices they paid for items so I will just say that I wound up paying very little for this book overall so even tho I consider it a mediocre art book, I am content with my purchase simply due to the fact that I paid so little for it. In fact, the price I paid for this book was one of the cheapest prices I have ever paid for an art book before. So my advice would be to keep an eye on the pricing and if you get an opportunity to buy it for a really great price, go ahead and do so. Its definitely worth it if you can get it cheap. That is really the only way I can recommend buying this book. The art book market for comic art is absolutely overflowing with amazing books so its hard giving this a recommendation with so many better books out there. So again, if your a big Texeira fan, only buy this if you can get a really good deal on it. Otherwise, I have to recommend passing altogether.
