The interviews include Clark Smith, Janet "JayJay" Jackson, Art Holcomb, Tim Perkins, Brady Darvin, J.C. Vaughn, J.G.Jones, Joe James, & Jim Shooter himself. contributor Scott Braden provides a special "Lost Tales" feature giving insight into what would have been if DEFIANT's Schism crossover had ever been published. Super-fan Jim Holister gives his insights on his history of collecting DEFIANT related collectibles. The final pages provide a checklist of non-comic related collectibles such as promo cards, buttons, hats etc. Jim Hollister provided photographs from his collection. There is a page listing estimated print runs so you can pinpoint which issue will be harder to find if you desire to collect the comics. There is also a price guide for DEFIANT Comics.
