This deluxe hard cover was one of the first ones that Valiant put out, and they knocked it out of the park. Rather than just collect the issues together (which would have been enough) they have also included behind the scenes information, such as sketches of the character and some additional background information. The arcs in his deluxe hardcover include some of the essential XO arcs (I think it concludes with Planet Death). While a little slow paced at times, the story unfolds very well to present a well plotted, well thought out story line. Easily in the top three comics that Valiant produces.
