I read this book in kindle format. I downloaded it through an App connected to my local library system. And when I was done I clicked a button and sent the book back.
Seems very fitting considering the subject matter.
(Pictured is the contest winning cover design by Matthew Owen. This will be the cover for the 60th Anniversary printings. I like it better than the standard cover)
This is the second of three planned volumes, dedicated to Alex Toth. I was absolutely floored by the first volume and the follow up is equally remarkable. If you’re a fan of art/comics/animation you could do much worse than having these on your shelf.

Phillip K Dick’s THE VARIABLE MAN, is available through my library to read on my Kindle. Couldn’t pass it up, super fun read.
‘Nuff Said true believers.
I picked up the first volume of Samurai executioner on a whim last weekend. This is a follow up to Koike & Kojima’s long running and influential series Lone Wolf and Cub. (One of my absolute favorite comic reading experiences) The main character’s name translates to NECK-CHOPPER ASA! I’m fairly certain I don’t need to sell anyone on why that is awesome.
I was asleep at the wheel when these were first translated and brought over by dark Horse. But now that I know about them I’m certainly looking forward to the rest.
This one’s a keeper. And definitely worth re-reading/refreshing the information every so often.
I really took my time reading this. In an attempt to absorb as much as possible. Anxiously looking forward to the further two volumes on his life and work.

This was read just for leisure. Mainly when I realized I’d only read reference books and biographies for months.
The second half of the book was a really brisk read. All in all very enjoyable.
This was a pretty fascinating account of the differing objectives of what would be the first air war the world had ever known. Specifically in this case focusing on the battle being waged in the skies during the Battle of Arras. Much of it in the participants own words. These men were on the absolute bleeding edge of technology making up the rules as they went along.
