Re: [mythsoc] OT: that Stardust question
- I heard that Neil states that the novel isn't nearly as good without the
illos. So I would say that YHO is right on. He _is_ the Writer so he
should know <g>. But I haven't been able to get hold of the illustrated
one yet, so I only have Neil's words to go on.

As for the illustrated Stardust, try your local comic book store. It came
out as a nice-sized graphic novel from DC/Vertigo, and also as a
mini-series of comic books, if this leaky sieve of brain remembers correctly.
If you look at Charles Vess' site,
there are some Stardust illos there.
