I've just discovered that there are extracts from Anarchy for the Masses on Googlebooks, an issue-by-issue collection of commentary and snippets of interviews with the creators.
There are some awful gaffes by the commentators - They state that Robin never carries a gun and the comic begins in 1987, for starters.
However you do get plenty of good stuff from the horses mouth. Ragged Robin was based on Jill Thompson in her looks (as was Brunhilde in P Craig Russell's Ring Cycle comics, fact fans.) Thompson herself says the Rob Liefield sequence was the hardest thing she's ever drawn. She had to unlearn everything she knew about anatomy and intelligible comicbook art.
There's probably lots of useful annotations in the sidebars, but I wasn't up to reading them this time around.
I thought I'd mention it here as it covers various pages of the book but only up to the Hand of Glory arc, where we are now.
