really liked it
Read in November, 1988

I got this when I was a kid; a kid obsessed with drawing, science fiction, fantasy, video games, and role playing. This, like my first encounter with the magazine Heavy Metal, was an utter shock. Beautiful drawings and so much thought elevated so-called junk to a level of majesty and beauty. It was one of my first times experiencing that sci-fi wasn't just junk, wasn't simply "good on its own terms," but could be Great. Thanks, Barlowe.
