My boyfriend just got this for me- as a surprise gift- and I love it! I am so happy! It's really gorgeous. Honestly- this is the first truly classy reprint of the original quest. The color styles changed so much from printing to printing- graphic novel to graphic novel- I had thought there was a shift in the quality of the art as well. But seeing it in black and white- I realize that Wendy's art is consistent from Book 1 through to the final page of Book 4. All the linework and detail is just wonderful. It's really lovely. I'm so happy to have this. And I'm so glad they are printing Books 5-8 together as well in the next release. I can't wait to give this to my little cousin for her birthday. I'm definitely handing these out as gifts. They are perfect.
