'ATTU: The Collected Volumes' by Sam Glanzman features the two published books as well as a third never-before-published book. It's about cavemen and dinosaurs and space, but my review copy had terrible art reproductions.

Starting with a foreword by Jeff Lemire and an introduction by Timothy Truman, we learn about the history of the book, and some about the artist Sam Glanzman. The books follow.

Attu explores a mysterious cave which seems to have artifacts from the future and what looks like a crashed ship. Most interesting to him is the strange woman trapped in a glass case. Once she is freed, Attu learns that there is more to the universe than he could have imagined.

The volume concludes with an afterword by Stephen R. Bissette and an extras section.

Is this a classic? I don't think so. Sam Glanzman is a pretty good artist and I recommend another work I recently read by him called U.S.S. Stevens for a better example of his talent. Besides feeling really dated, the review copy I received looked like really bad photocopies and they were hard to read.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dover Publications and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
