This book features stunning full-page illustrations of classic Garbage Pail Kids cards from Topps' Series 1 through 3. There is interesting foreward and afterword by Art Spiegelman and John Pound, respectively, but I would have liked to hear from all of the artists and designers in more detail. Also, while the card art looks great, why no rough card art or sketches (John Pound has them all over his site, so they do exist)? The book is pretty much something you can see at one of many GPK fan sites. Finally, I'm sort of split on the dust jacket. While it tries to replicate the GPK wax packs of the 80's, I can see it tearing very easily.
