I burned through this big tome in only two days. And why not? The material is excellent. It's quite a serious book and of course the drawings are excellent. Eisner would never use two lines where one would do. This is the perfect tonic to the overdrawn style that seems to be so popular lately.

I particularly liked the last story about the life cycle of a neighborhood, from farmland to new homes to shabby to tenement and back to gentrification. This comic could qualify as non-fiction.
