"A brilliant piece of fiction." - Richard Gehr, The Village Voice
"When first serialized in 1986-7, this extraordinary story took the comics world by storm, and its fresh approach, more mature and realistic than most other mainstream comics of the time, became a template for much of what came later...This remains a pinnacle of comics achievement, and no collection should be without it.."
