In this volume we have a short but welcome return to the classic thick-line style for Bop It Out and Adventures of Onionhead. Although drawn in medium-line style, all of Snoid Comics is so great you will think it's in thick-line!

The rest is great too, of course, especially the Bizarre Sex # 8 cover. You get the whole Heroes of the Blues card set here as well. We didn't list the album covers because you've already got The Complete Record Cover Collection, right? And who could live without My Troubles With Women [Part 1]?

The Table of Contents lists a color cover set for American Splendor # 24, but actually it is # 5. 

 At the moment of this writing, the Fantagraphics website says a reprint of this volume is available to order, and for an extra $ 30 US "with Signed Bookplate Option".
