From the Publisher
Josh Neufeld has been drawing comics since he was four years old. With his friend of almost 20 years, Dean Haspiel, Josh co-created Keyhole, where Josh does stories about his travel experiences in Southeast Asia and Central Europe. Keyhole has run for six issues with two different publishers. Josh has contributed artwork to Harvey Pekar's American Splendor (Dark Horse), the SPX anthologies, The Big Book of Urban Legends (DC/Paradox Press), and Duplex Planet Illustrated (Fantagraphics), among others. He resides in Brooklyn and makes a living mixing freelance illustration with web design.

Arrived by Amazon with some roughed edges (despite ordering it with a calculator!), so my copy definitely won't be a collector's item even if, as the Perelman-Marvel story probably would make obvious, probably was wishful thinking anyway :)
I have no idea if the book is good or not as I can't read it!
Titans Of Finance is also a comic book, albeit an unusual one. It's a departure for Neufeld- I think it was conceived as a one-shot, but who knows, hopefully there will be more. The cover gives readers a good idea of what to expect. Walker and Neufeld lambaste their greedy subjects, but treat them as human as well. This doesn't make us like them any better, but it does make these stories ring with truth.
If you are interested in biographical comics, or in finance, this book is for you. I truly hope they are reading it on Wall Street.
