Art of the Incredibles September 1, 2004
Author: Mark Cotta Vaz, Brad Bird, John Lasseter
Subject:From the Acadamy Award-winning studio that brought us Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., and the blockbuster Finding Nemo, comes The Incredibles, a hilarious and action-packed story of a family of superheroes banished to a boring suburban existence.
