...not that there's anything wrong with that :-)

Some of the most influential graphic novel creators contributed to this.
All are very short stories, some no longer than a single page.
Some of the stories are serious, some are humerous, and some are just, errr, I should I put this delicately... what?... no I don't mean to infer anything by that... heh

The downsides of this book are not the fault of the creators, but rather time and politics.
