    A must-read for comic book geeks like me who started collecting in the 1990's. George Khoury does in-depth interviews with (almost) all the founders and creators involved with the launch of independent comics' juggernaut Image Comics and it makes for a fascinating read.

You can learn a lot from this. You can learn how to be a team and not let egos destroy what you are striving to create as an Indy Company. I highly recommend this book.
