WHY WE LOVE IT: The late Sergio Toppi remains one of the great master sequential
artists whose work inspired a generation of illustrators and comic artists who followed
him. The Collector is Toppi's longest-running original series, now translated into English
for the first time since its debut in 1984.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Toppi's breathtaking line work and composition will leave you
staring at his pages for hours. While this oversized edition serves as much as an art book
as a comic, the adventures of the globescouring, daredevil Collector will appeal to fans
of Indiana Jones, Five Ghosts, or Doc Savage.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Far from the auction halls of the elite, The Collector seeks out rare
and mysterious artifacts across the world. He is at home in the salons of Paris as he is in
the jungles of Borneo. Set against the backdrop of late 19thcentury colonialism, The
Collector is a delightful, swashbuckling adventure!
