Big dreams is what this book is about. Dreams realized, by many people, working in many different ways, who work separately and in brilliant bands of colleagues, to produce true, honest, great visual storytelling, in a time of great change and challenge. And these are people I'm proud to call my true friends and comrades, part of a great community that in its 49th year is truly experiencing a golden age of creativity.
