Read and discussed by North Park Branch Library's Comic-Con Book Club. The book is a fun romp with wonderful artwork, but in many ways it feels like something a couple dudes in the 70s would come up with during a late-night creative brainstorming session. It would be intriguing to see what the movie had been like had it actually been created. All in all, though, it's well worth reading.
