The art in this book looks better than anything else Byrne has done in years. Shot directly from pencils, uninked, the details and shading really shine.

Writer/artist John Byrne tells the story of Angel during WWI. It's a fun story, very much in keeping with the tone of the series. The art, reproduced directly from Byrne's uninked pencils in black and white, is gorgeous. Recommended for fans of Angel or John Byrne.
