A Good Collection of Cover ArtI had forgotten just how many of my top faves are specifically Vertigo titles e.g. Sandman, Hellblazer, The Invisibles, Transmetropolitan, Preacher, Fables, Y - The Last Man, among others. And now having leafed through this time and time again I find that I am going to have to search out a whole list of new titles and, I hope, gain a few new favourites. I could see this book appealing to comic fans, graphic novel readers, artists and their appreciators, and even to those that have perhaps never been into this medium. The art stands alone, though it is of course directly related to their titles, it can be appreciated without the text within. A good starter or simply a good collectors item.
