Josh Neufeld is known for his work on autobiographical comics featured in Keyhole (with Dean Haspiel) and in his newer comic "The Vagabonds. He's also worked on Harvey Pekar's landmark comic "American Splendor," which is now a major motion picture. Titans Of Finance is also a comic book, albeit an unusual one. It's a departure for Neufeld- I think it was conceived as a one-shot, but who knows, hopefully there will be more. The cover gives readers a good idea of what to expect.

'Titans of Finance' is a collection of graphic short stories about figures from the world of business," writer R. Walker told CBR News on Thursday.

At a certain point I began reading the financial pages for reasons having to do with my job, and I thought, 'Wow, some of these stories and these people are really interesting - I wish there was a way I could communicate these stories to friends of mine, who care not a whit about business but would still enjoy them.

What goes up must come down. It's a natural law that the New Economy just learned all over again. Recent times have been fantastically dramatic in the cloistered world of American business: Narratives full of larger-than-life characters, outsized egos, astonishing hubris, and lots and lots of money. It's action-packed. It makes good comics. That's the idea behind Titans of Finance, a new and groundbreaking merger of reality - straight from the business pages - and comix. You've never seen anything like it: True tales from the world of big money, wittily translated through America's most populist medium. Meet Ron Perelman, the man who made millions while presiding over the Mighty Marvel Comics train wreck. Thrill to the antics of "Chainsaw" Al Dunlap, Mike "The V-Man" Vranos, and "Jaybird" Goldinger - and many more of Wall Street's most well-known Icaruses. These aren't just instructive episodes about the current climate. They're timeless tales, like the Bible or Cats. Never mind Spawn and Spider-man. These are our superheroes now. These tales "hit the mark," says Harvey Pekar, and are "a brilliant use of the medium," according to TheStreet.com's James J. Cramer. Best of all, it's all true! Titans of Finance is entirely based on press accounts. The results are mind-blowing. Over the past five years, in fact, Titans has crushed the benchmark S&P 500. You've never seen anything like it - this is one acquisition you won't regret.

OK short stories for what they are, more so if you were unfamiliar with the cast of business personalities from primarily the 1990s. Was funny them mocking Marvel by using ostracized kids who thought they could "identify" with the characters in the comics.

Arrived by Amazon with some roughed edges (despite ordering it with a calculator!), so my copy definitely won't be a collector's item even if, as the Perelman-Marvel story probably would make obvious, probably was wishful thinking anyway :)

I enjoyed "X-Presidents" so much I thought I'd try "Titans of Finance," thinking it would be in the same vein. While inspired, "Titans" is just not in the same league. If you're in finance and enjoy seeing some fine skewerings (most of them deserved), then give this book a whirl. Otherwise, spend a few more dollars and go for the "X-Presidents."

This book is completely illegible on my Kindle 3. The speech bubbles contain text written in a black font on a dark gray background. It is impossible to zoom in and read anything because it is formatted as a .mobi. It also contains numerous "blank" pages that are frustrating.

I have no idea if the book is good or not as I can't read it!

Titans Of Finance is also a comic book, albeit an unusual one. It's a departure for Neufeld- I think it was conceived as a one-shot, but who knows, hopefully there will be more. The cover gives readers a good idea of what to expect. Walker and Neufeld lambaste their greedy subjects, but treat them as human as well. This doesn't make us like them any better, but it does make these stories ring with truth.
If you are interested in biographical comics, or in finance, this book is for you. I truly hope they are reading it on Wall Street.

I'm sure that Mr. Walker and Mr. Neufeld will be able to spend the rest of their lives on this brilliant (and disturbingly funny) title -- there seems to be an endless supply of stories about nasty, nasty people doing nasty, nasty things in the corporate world. So, when do they tackle the big fellas in our current regime who're sleeping with big money? Guess it's not a good time to rock the boat these days -- might end up in front of a court run by rabid kangaroos...
