How's the book? Pretty fantastic, actually. Brandon succeeds in writing dialogue that's not too corny, Thor, "verily" this and that, while at the same time giving an authentic feel to the interactions between characters, as well as to the characters themselves. Annikki and her father were an interesting pair, while the protagonists were the kind of anti-heroes you hate to like. Within these pages Brandon puts together a solid, complex, while still fun to read introductory issue.
As many other reviews have pointed out, the sheer size of the comic is eye-catching (it's slightly taller and wider than an average floppy), of course. But what first got my attention was the quality of the cover and paper. A beautiful, glossy cardstock cover and thick, heavy paper makes you wonder why you're only paying $2.99 for a book of such high quality with no advertising while other companies are making books smaller and charging more. Image is such a hit-or-miss-and-really-just-mostly-miss publisher but they really got lucky with this. If giving stars was the kind of thing I did I'd give this book five out of five, but it isn't so instead I'll just say that you should go out of your way to buy this.
"Keep it real, everybody."
