Zot!: The Complete Black-and-White Stories: 1987-1991, by Scott McCloud, is a great collection of a great series. I was happy to reread its 36 issues, and sad all over again when I got to the end of Zot, Jenny, and everyone else¿s story. This collection stands alone, but is a follow up to the out-of-print Zot! Book 1. Zot! is a great YA series, with heroes and villains, but also romance and problems for everyday, interesting, engaging characters. It has a hopeful outlook, which stands in pleasant contrast to bleaker views that have predominated in the comics landscape since Moore¿s Watchmen and Miller¿s Dark Knight Returns, in the 80¿s.

Let me preface this by saying "I like this book". However...It's a good thing Scott McCloud decided to write about the art, science, and business of comics instead of pursuing more projects like this one. While I can appreciate some of the things Mr. McCloud attempted with Zot!, the end result isn't very compelling for the average comic reader.If you're a fan of Scott McCloud, and have read his other work, then definitely pick up this collection and read it. It's like a mental road map of the experiences and experiments that led him to his greater works.If you don't know who Scott McCloud is, then I recommend you do not read this collection until you've read Understanding Comics, Reinventing Comics, and Making Comics. On it's own it pales in comparison to those more academic oriented projects.

I found this in the bookstore (obviously enough!) and was immediately intrigued: a black and white collection of super hero Zot. Not something I¿d heard of before which tempered my impulse buy. After a couple weeks though the book was still piquing my interest so I had to succumb, and my intuition was correct as I loved every bit of this. Some of the early stories aren¿t overly complex but it¿s the latter stories which are powerful. The first half of the book deals with Zot on his version of Earth and are a typical look at the super hero figure. Some good stories particularly The Ghost in the Machine. However, it¿s the stories with Zot in our world where the writing is superb. Strong characters and plotting make this both readable and thoughtful. Highlights include: Normal; Invincible. It¿s not just the storytelling in this collection though, it¿s the artwork too. Some of the panels are just breathtaking, the amount of detail, particularly the imagined art, are amazing to see. A beautiful collection of work.

What a great collection! Holds up surprisingly well and kept me entertained the entire time. Love this world, love these characters, and simply love the positive outlook on life and the world practiced by the main character!

One of the best comic series I have ever read. A friend recommended the 80s' series when I needed a break from Marvel and DC comics. I enjoyed the great storytelling and fun characters (especially the villains Dr. Ignatius Rumbault Bellows and 9-Jack-9).
