Michael Dooley- Author and Professor of Comics and Animation History on book 2: "Greg Preston has diligently and passionately devoted decades of his life to seeking out and documenting the most significant professionals in the fields of animation, comic books and strips, graphic novels, and political cartoons. His "The Artist Within" is a publishing milestone, unsurpassed in providing us with a unique appreciation and admiration for the giants of graphic narrative. And now we all have the potential for a second volume, one that builds and expands on the accomplishments of the first. I've seen the original prints, and they're even more stunning and essential."
