Big Crime for a Small Price

I love well told crime stories. I love well done comics. How do you think I reacted when I found out about The Mammoth Book of the Best Crime Comics?

Edited by Paul Gravett and designed by Peter Stanbury, this 480 page monster features stories by Dashiell Hammett & Alex Raymond, Will Eisner, Johnny Craig, Mickey Spillane, Bernie Krigstein, Alan Moore, Joe Simon & Jack Kirby, Neil Gaiman, Alex Toth, Jordi Bernet, Paul Grist, Jack Cole, Charles Burns, Max Allan Collins, and José Muñoz & Carlos Sampayo. You can check out sample pages here.

If that's not enough to get you reaching for your wallet, then maybe the fact that you can get here for less than fourteen smackatoons is.
