McCloud was well-written and placed the work in conrtato, as well as conveying information about the life and career of Eisner.

So even though I was expecting to be disappointed by this being a sappy morality tale, I have to admit that a part of me really does want to see the good guys rewarded and the bad guys get what’s comin’ to ’em.
