Roman Albums have been around for a long time, dating back to the 70s. The bulky books cover a wide range of series, and tend to have
the usual staples of art books: screen shots, character bios, artwork, etc.
This is easily the largest art book released for the series. And by large, I don't mean page count: it is actually large in size,
measuring 12" tall and 9 1/2" wide (for comparision, "Perfect Collection" is the next largest, and it measures 10" tall and 7" wide).
Content-wise, it has a few new things that the other art books don't, such as a huge double-sided poster, a comic strip revealing
Grant Oldman as the athlete who originally defeated the Nelilians (which makes him pretty dang old!), and a bunch of nice colored pencil
art. Despite these nice things, some of the artwork can be found in the "Perfect Collection" book... just smaller.
It is a nice book, though, and has enough new content to make it worth picking up.
Some other information on the book includes:
