"The book itself is absolutely gorgeous! It was great revisiting the comics I loved when I first bought them. And seeing them the same size as the original art with the markings, blue pencils, notes, registration marks, etc. from the board was like seeing it in a whole new way. Wayne and Craig, you did a great service to PCR fans with the terrific restoration and I look forward to future releases." — Kickstarter Backer
