    In my quest to develop a taste for comics and graphic novels, i'm reading from the 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die list. This was the next one up. The artwork was amazing and magical. So glad I discovered this artist and look forward to learning more about him. Read during #24in48 Readathon.
