Some of these are really good, even with each author's own unique artstyle quirks and techniques not really being the most accurate protrayal of the people they're supposed to represent. Wouldn't mind getting some of them.

As a side note, there's a funny typo near the end of the article where Vladimir Lenin is mistakenly called "Vladimir Lennon".

These are some wonderful covers! Great choices for the different historical figures, too.

I think the only cover which doesn't work for me is Volume 14. I like Shin'ichi Sakamoto's style, but Franklin D. Roosevelt as an ikemen is a bit too jarring Anime smile + sweatdrop

Too bad Kazuki Takahashi can't do Egyptian history.
