Mack's beautiful cover art caught my eye as I browsed the shelves at Minotaur. I've only browsed through the book so far but I'm loving what I see. And it's for a good cause to boot.
"In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, more than eighty comics creators joined forces to create an anthology to benefit the victims of the hurricane and subsequent flooding of New Orleans. Premiering at Wizard World Chicago 2006, the anthology collects 33 stories in its initial print run. It will find its way into comic stores at a later date that is yet to be announced. With stories ranging from first reactions to the catastrophe, slice of life, humor, horror, the supernatural and superhero fun, original tales as well as those featuring existing characters by various creators, HOPE: New Orleans is a book catering to all tastes in genres. The proceeds from the sale of this book will go toward the Red Cross and its continued effort to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, so go ahead and support this." Source
