    James Stokoe's art reminds me of Geof Darrow if he drew Manga. Stokoe's art is incredibly detailed and busy with a bit of a anime look to his facial features. This collects a lot of random artwork from his major books like Wonton Soup and Orc Stain along with a lot of unpublished stories that are often unfinished. There's plenty of pages for books that have been released but were pages Stokoe eventually redrew. There is also some of the Marvel covers he did.

It's a somewhat strange hodge-podge collection of art, but Stokoe fans will definitely enjoy it. Received a review copy form Dark Horse and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in now influenced by the aforementioned.

    James Stokoe and this art book are gronch-crushingly amazing! I'm kind of sad his two-page Predator comic featuring Super Grover was not included, though the Orc Stain pages alone are worth the price of admission.

    It's Stokoe, so it's all great stuff, but if you've kept up with his published work and his website over the years then you won't find much new stuff in this collection.

    What an amazing, outlandish, highly detailed art style! Will definitely be seeking some of his work out.

    It's a bit of a difficult book to rate because its more of an art collection than a story. The quality of the book is excellent. It's really a great coffee table book if you have the sort of friends coming over who won't be freaked out by hyper-detailed, photo-quality drawings of orcs cutting each other's penises off. The content is a grab-bag of Stokoe's art over the past decade. Including his big comic works like Wonton Soup and Orc Stain. It also includes some random art work from him as well It's a bit of a difficult book to rate because its more of an art collection than a story. The quality of the book is excellent.

However, if you follow Stokoe's art like I do, the vast majority of this will probably be stuff you've seen before, although not in quite as high of quality. So, if you're getting this expecting a lot of previously unseen content, then you'll also be disappointed by what's included in here. In addition, some of Stokoe's work is not showcased in here, certain blog comics, and Sullivan's sluggers are not included or even highlighted, and I know he has more Marvel work that could be included as well. Maybe it's a copyright thing? Regardless, I love this collection, but it loses the 1 star because I was expecting there to just be more of it here.

    I have seen this artists work in random comics single issues I would see in comic stores however I never really read one of his Series. I requested to view this before it was released and I could not put it down I was hypnotized by the beautiful and detailed artwork which is easily said it has its own category and style . I read comics a lot and because of this book track down Orc stain volume one by image comics. I definitely want to collect his other works but it’s quite pricey so I know I wi I have seen this artists work in random comics single issues I would see in comic stores however I never really read one of his Series.

    The whole thing looks great, of course, and I loved seeing the Marvel covers and the stuff from Alien: Dead Orbit. The rest was OK. It’s worth noting that I read the digital version, and knowing the quality of Dark Horse’s physical books, I bet the hardcover is a more striking experience.

    Hard to believe that Stokoe’s art is from this reality, let alone this planet, let alone this hemisphere, let alone this continent. Margin to margin weirdo-ness and corner to corner detail.

    Loads of imaginative ideas and highly detailed sketches and drawings. Definitely not for everyone, but it delivers some singular eye candy in a signature style.
