Anticipation can be a dangerous thing. Sometimes you wait and wait for a book, movie or comic to materialize, and it's bound to be a letdown. But every once in a while, all your patience actually pays off. Which project did you wait years for... and it was totally worth the wait?

Please include a picture, poster, movie clip, comics panel, book cover or other representation of your long-awaited delight. And please mention the name, and why it was worth every minute. Thanks! And thanks to Michael Weyer for suggesting this topic.
