I bought This
I saw the Watching the Watchmen at Borders. Looked through it. Got it cheaper through Amazon.
What sold me is just about every page of the comic book is shown in thumbnail form where Gibbons spots his blacks over his rough gesture sketch. It's just an inspiring clinic on composition and appealing shapes. I've been trying to slow down on book buying but had to have this one.
Then Yongwoo brought Shadowline by Ian McCaig to work. I'd seen it previewed at the Gnomon seminar. Had to have that as well. 80 bucks for more raw tonnage of books.
