Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A must read for fans and should even intrigue non-fans" Philly.com

I loved it. Comic biographies are tricky business, plagued with art complexity. When we read fictional stories, we create iconography based upon how the characters are described or drawn. Not so in a biography of a famous person because the reader is already familiar with what the person looks like.

"You'll probably want to get this book because there could be tidbits you do not know" Los Angeles Times
