A merely solid start to Jeff Smith's follow up to Bone, when one might expect more from this venerable artist. The drawings and timing are as masterful as ever, but the story here seems more self-indulgent than Bone. It feels like Jeff Smith just read a few books about Tesla and conspiracy theories and deiced it would make a good story... unfortunately it only makes a decent story.

I do like the interplay between the Character's personal problems with womanizing and the ill-effects of dimension-hopping. It's a clever metaphor, but it's still not enough to sustain it. Still, if you are a comics enthusiast, this one is worth checking out for the awesome antagonist alone.
