Bookstores, record stores, cheap booze, basements and strange people who play in dark rock bands are the main characters in this  comic book that tells what were the 90's

    "For starts this isn't even a comic book. It doesn't even follow the typical comic book style and is a real story from a real person. As a comic book fan this does not fit into what I think a comic book should be. This book should have been done in another style that doesn't give comic books a bad name."

I dropped nearly $90 to get this huge book full of comics, and after hours of sitting down with it, I fail to believe this is the best. It isn't as action packed or engaging as I thought it would be."

    "A lot of people may come to this comic book from the movie version that came out a year or two ago. At risk of sounding like a cliche, I'd say that the book is far superior, definitely up there in the conversation about the greatest comic books of all time. The artwork is just fantastic, and the story, unlike a lot of character crossover narratives, actually advances the storylines for the major characters rather than presenting a minor diversion. In short: it's a fantastic comic book, and a must-read for fans of the Marvel universe. "
