This book was published in June 1994 (ISBN 0-7851-0054-7, 216 pages, no cover price), under the Marvel Limited Line. It comes with a faux leather embossed hardcover, with an exclusive additional embossed illustrated dust jacket (Frank Miller). Back in 1994, such efforts to produce a nice looking book were quite rare (although not numbered or advertised as a limited edition, the print run is probably very low). Mariano Nicieza is credited as editor on this book designed by Karen cohn.
