Review by Jessiqa
This is an art book full of prints of Scott C.'s watercolors featuring showdowns between movie characters, like the Ghostbusters vs. Slimer. I was surprised at the weight of the book; it's pretty hefty for such a small book. The style of the art is simple and cute. Really. I find it amazing how just a line or two can clearly define for me just what character is portrayed. There were several movies I didn't recognize, however, so I wish there was an index at the back to help define the images. As a Muppet fan, I'm also sad that one of the paintings mentioned by Neil Patrick Harris in his introduction is not present in the book: Kermit vs. Doc Hopper. Overall, fantastic book. In fact I bought two copies so that I could spread the love at Christmas.
