It's not Cosmic Trigger 1. It felt like such a mishmash of ideas and writings that it was more a cash-grab. There didn't need to be a second Cosmic Trigger. Although it retains much of the RAW humor I enjoy, the paranoia and occult sensibilities were very '90's. I'm much more of a fan of the brain change LSD paranoia cosmic reality of the first. In fact of the synchronicity and connection to the Dogstar Sirius so important to the first he seemed to flippantly write off. It sort of diminish the charter for me and took me out of the comic head space. Much of it seemed dated and looked back rather then talked about his current journey. The disjointed narrative didn't do much to serve the central story for me. I'd rather learn more about the secret of the Illuminati then read anti Gulf War essays.
