The Sphinx by Jeff Weigel
We'll file this under "Seriously Belated." But, in fairness, I wanted to make sure this book was available for order when I wrote about it. It is, and there will be a link at the end of this entry.
I wrote about the Sphinx last year, and that entry outlines a lot of why the book works on an artistic level. So, does it work as a collection? Oh, absolutely. It is smartly packaged, with a number of really attractive extras for those who already own the comics. There's even a text piece from some guy named Elam. No idea what that's all about.
The Sphinx is another worthy addition to "The Big Bang Comics Collection" from Pulp 2.0 Press. You can order it from Amazon here. And keep your eyes peeled, because the review of the next book in that collection will not take quite so long to appear.
