I own the previous 2 battle milks and had to have this one, too.
I was expecting a book that showcased sketches and development behind an artist's personal project. Due to the way much of the material was presented however, I felt like I was getting a comic project pitched to me. That might have been great but the presentation on many of these seemed sloppy and rushed and did not do the material justice. There are a few gems in here, don't get me wrong, but overall the work is lacking.
In addition to the problems with presentation, I also was unsure of the role the book would play on my bookshelf. There is beautiful art and stories, but each chapter ends with a demo on how the artist made a certain piece within the book. Why? All of a sudden my display/coffee table book has decided to become an instructional book. I"m interested in that kind of thing but it felt so shoehorned in in this case. It's almost as if the people who made it were not confident enough in the art and stories to let them stand on their own. I want to assert also that these parts of the books are demos, they were way to brief to share the creative process of the artist behind them.
I'm not saying no one will like this book, but I want to get it across that this book has much more of an unfinished comic book feel to it than one full of concept sketches. If that is not what you're expecting, then don't buy it. My book arrived damaged, so I was going to return it regardless, but I did not opt for an exchange in the end.
