In my opinion, the best archival edition of this material because of the paper stock: it looks like the comic book. Archival collections are typically printed on a whiter coated stock than the original comics and the coloring is not adjusted to compensate for that, so the colors are too bright and too garish. The colors here are muted and the overall reproduction looks closest to the original comic books. And that is what I want whether I'm indulging in nostalgia or coming to the work for the very first time.
