Simply put, this is beautiful. Alex Ross, who's now a legend, shows why as he paints every single imaginable detail in such realistic incredibility. Its amazing. Somehow he creates an iconic look for each of these icons without making them look alike. Obviously the selling point of this collection is the artwork by Ross but Paul Dini does a good job with each story focusing on a certain aspect of the hero. While none of the plotlines are earth shattering or matter to the continuity of each hero they are still good. One small complaint was while mostly the book is done without text boxes the text can sometimes be hard to read or even see without them. I understand that the editors wanted as much of the art as possible to be seen but it's a hindrance at times. Overall this is a really good book that you could stare at for hours.
