CBR Review: The Art of Top Cow

I recently reviewed The Art of Top Cow for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Let’s be honest here for a moment: when you see a book titled The Art of Top Cow, a specific art style jumps to mind. One that descends from Top Cow founder Marc Silvestri with thin lines (perhaps too many), women with impossible bodies wearing little clothes, and hulking men with guns that just maybe resemble characters from another company. There’s some truth in that immediate impression of Top Cow’s work since those elements are found in the pages of this book, but, surprisingly, that sort of art takes up the minority of this book as Top Cow displays that it has featured some of the top names in comics over the years, many of whom you wouldn’t normally associate with the company."
