While many remastered reissues tend to sound over produced and worse than the original, this remaster sounds phenomenal. Having owned the cassettes of Initium, November's Coming Fire, and Final Decent since around 90-91 and having heard the original vinyl releases, I can easily say that this is the definitive/best sounding versions of the Samhain catalog.

i purchased this box set from media play back when it first came out back in 2000. my set did not come with the comic book. did all of the sets come with a comic book or only certain sets? if anyone has any info it would really help me out.
