One of my all-time favourite things is my over-sized Jeff Jones Idyl collection.

Idyl was my favourite thing that was a comic when I was a teenager. I didn't understand the ones I read, but I loved them anyway... Now they're collected and are as magical and elegant as they ever were.

I wish there was more knowldege about this out there. It may have helped people realize that the Zootannapuss parts in glamourpuss were an homage to it, much in the same way the Moon Roach was an homage to Neal Adams/ Bill Sienkiewicz.
