"This volume brings together not only a variety of material but a wide range of techniques and styles from Russell’s career. Each story is a completely different approach to presentation, with a unique design sense. From Salome’s cloak to the pencilled shading of 'The Godfather’s Code' and the photorealism of 'Between Two Worlds.' Reading these stories in this raw original art format is to rediscover an old favourite. I can’t wait for the next volume." — Artist's Edition Index
