Long before [author:Frank Miller] created [book:Sin City], crime stories infiltrated the graphic form. In this massive (479 pp) collection of 25 stories, The Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics re-introduces contemporary readers to the extraordinary talents of [author:Alan Moore], [author:Neil Gaiman], [author:Will Eisner], [author:Dashiell Hammett], [author:Jack Cole], [author:Alex Raymond], and [author:Jordi Bernet]. Editor Paul Gravett has compiled one of the greatest anthologies of graphic stories ever produced, regardless of genre or subject. At $17.95 ($19.50 Can), the doorstop beauty is an incredible bargain as well.
