I'm very proud of this one. It's a lovely package: matte finish cover with spot gloss, red tail bands and endpapers, a bound-in bookmark ribbon, and almost FIFTY PAGES of bonus material—interviews, sketchbooks, script-to-page process, prose fiction, and some other fun bits (like the "Preliminary Incident Report" ghosted into the background of the front cover; a careful read shows it's the summary of the events of the first issue).
It is rather a hefty tome that honestly should cost closer to $45 or $50, and I hope you check it out.
