Slightly better than the film, in as much as you don't have to listen to the execrable dialogue. Can almost see some glimmers of an interesting premise, but really, life's too short.

Interesting.

I reserved reviewing and rating until I finished III, since, really, these function as one book.

Not sure how I missed this when it came around the first time. I am VERY curious to see how this plays out in Books IV, V, VI -- aka, the movie.

Honestly, anything involving Nicola Tesla's wacky work (wireless electricity: terrifying and intriguing, all at once), and I'm in.

Lots of fairly big-name stars in the flick (including Sarah Michelle Gellar -- I LOVE her -- as a psychic porn star).

Boxer Santaros wakes up in the middle of the desert with no memory and syringes full of Fluid Karma. He connects with Krysta Now, who pulls him into a plan involving an old film script she wrote. (view spoiler)

My thoughts on the series will come at the end of Part III.

this is the first (1st) part of a trilogical graphic novel prequel to the new movie (Southland Tales) by Richard Kelly, the auteur of Donnie Darko. it is impossible to accurately judge it yet. but the art is cool.

I read this after seeing the movie, and it didn't tell me much I didn't already know from the movie. I went into this mostly with the hope that it would tell me more about the pre-movie relationship between Krysta and Boxer, and it didn't really.

Eh. Felt really forced. Horrible writing. Decent art. Not enough here to keep me interested, though.
