From the file marked "'About Time!"

While I'm on a Frank Quitely streak: the final cover for the FLEX MENTALLO collection, as revealed via the good burghers of Robot Six. A rather masterful use of the aul’ trademark Morrison/Deighan "4D comics" approach.

Super cool. Read the individual issues years ago. Looking forward to reading it again. Wasn't this mired in copyright isues for some reason?

Yeah, Charles Atlas sued and lost the case, yet DC management resisted demand to reprint it; too chicken-shit to listen to the clamour for it amongst a generation of fans who'd missed it, and saw its back issue price soaring, as its reputation as the Morrison/Quitely team's rosetta stone arose.

Of course, all those kids now possess a pirated digital copy. I wonder if they'll bother buying it now?

Gorgeous...

One of the few series I brought with me from back home. I've lent it to so many friends over the years I've lost count...

Maybe they can all band together and buy me this nice shiny hardcover...
