CBR Review: The Unexpected #1

I recently reviewed The Unexpected #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Anthology books are a crapshoot, especially in comics.

Where it succeeds is as an art sampler for the likes of Dave Gibbons, Jill Thompson, Denys Cowan, Farel Dalrymple, and more talented artists. The Rafael Grampá cover sets the tone: good art is to be found in this comic."
