really liked it

I read this in single-issue format, which I guess you could make an argument both for and against the appropriateness of. I think you probably get more of a sense of the individuality of each segment of the story, but lose something of the cohesiveness of the whole.

For me, these Brazilian twins can do little wrong, and while I didn't love this as much as some of their other work they've illustrated (like Casanova or Umbrella Academy), I'd attribute that more to the differences in storytelling rather than a lack of quality artwork here.

There's an overall dreamy, philosophical, maybe melancholy tone to the story here, I guess both lamenting and celebrating life and how wonderful and unexpected and brief it can be. That may not have been what I was looking for at the time I read this, but I could see this being something that would reward additional readings.
