It's still a realistic retelling of the behind the scenes comic book history. Depressing, but always interesting. This is a necessary book, even if we don't want to see how badly our artistic heroes were treated.
One of the things that is fun in this book is Chaykin's versions of real comics, like the EC line up or Archie. The pages of the Simon/Kirby (and others) are really well done.
Mine is in the mail. I'm looking forward to it.
