Woot! I get to read all the specials without buying them all individually. I loved the historical episodes involving the cycle of the gods. My favorite was definitely the murder mystery set in 1923. The mix of comic panels and text passages was a fun change for the usual format. I also really enjoyed the Romantic story modeled on the creation of Frankenstein. Really really loved this collection. Now I have to wait until the fall to get the final trade of the series.
