It was the BIG deal in comics of the 80s and changed comics forever and of my generation. i was 4 years old when the first issue came and collected each of the 12 issues and they opened my imagination to new heights. When i was 13 i sold the issues as i bought the graphic novel version as it was my first graphic novel purchase and this comic changed my life.

It was mentioned a lot in Wizard magazine through the 90s, but the trade paperback wasn't really available. Sadly I didn't read it until 2004-ish. I recently picked up some issues at a toy show and I'd never seen single issues before, but they're actually not that valuable.
