Thanks for the tip. I've got all those issues, but I know a lot of people who have not read them.

Seems like a well-intentioned fan site. I hope they don't end up causing more problems in the end, though. I imagine that any potential publisher of the material will want to have all those pages taken off the web before too long. But since nobody is currently taking that role as an actual publisher, I don't have many real objections.

My one mild objection, of course, is that the creators aren't getting paid for this. But nobody's getting paid for this. It's ridiculous that the books are still out of print, still earning nothing for anybody. Given that situation, going on for two decades now, at least this is an imperfect way for readers to get to read the stories. If the books could just be printed again, then there would be no need for sites like this.

It needs a trade or two. I need it. Very Happy
I've read them all, but never owned them all--a benefit of having smart, talented, tasteful readers as best friends. Both Moore and Gaiman were superb on it--some of my favorite work by either of them. The only things I like more by both is Swamp Thing and Sandman. Gary Leach was one of the best draftsmen in comics, ever, and I wish he'd been 'imported' like Bolland was. Loved Totleben and Buckingham's art, love the lyricism of the whole package on the Eclipse stuff.

A proudest moment of mine was getting to draw Miracleman for a few panels in Total Eclipse.
