  2. Hey Paul, thanks for the comment. The comics in the volume you mention are great stuff. However, I found the presentation of the book itself to be extremely disappointing. The so-called "life story" is hardly that. The art is reproduced poorly. And it's not the complete comic book work of Gross. I wouldn't mind this book so much if we lived in a world where old comics were so popular that the market could support more than one lavish hardcover book on Gross -- but that's not the case, and so this hastily made book blows the chance to create something much more valuable. I don't even own the book, as much as I love the work of Gross. This book packager has done the same with Herriman's Tiger Tea strips (the book only offers a fraction of the episodes in this series), and so many others. In the long run, these slap-dash projects do far more damage than good. Milt deserves better.
