Eisner's "Shop Talk" was great...but I couldn't help shake the feeling of this being an even greater tease.

What a wonderful idea. Sitting down with comic legends and talking about, what else? Comics! Throughout the conversations we learn about techniques, we learn about history of the medium from those who were there for its early inception, and we learn about some of the ideologies of those in the field.

It's in my top five of books of the "how to make comics" genre...famous Eisner interviews 20 or so landmark comic artists--the information is fascinating, informative, and entertaining to read.
