it was amazing

In this volume, Tony Chu and Amelia Mintz start to date seriously and explore the dining delights of their city much to the detriment of illegal meat traffickers, while we catch up with Mason Savoy's goings-on since his disappearance in the first book. Throw in a psychotic chicken, a siege, a unique Thanksgiving dinner, and a mysterious energy beam, and you have another strong book in this superb, underrated series.

Rob Guillory's art continues to be superb, even getting better by the issue. The full cover spread of issue #15 is included here and is a riff on Da Vinci's last supper. John Layman continues to supply dynamite scripts that have snappy dialogue and brilliant setups. His move in the last chapter of this book just pushes the story further into more interesting territory. Not a single issue has been dull and it's entirely to Layman's credit that he's kept the pace up this long and doesn't show signs of flagging.

A superb next book in the series. If you're a fan then you're buying this whether I recommend it or not but if you're wondering if the quality of the first two books is maintained or not I can happily say that if anything the story gets better. I love this series and loved this book and cannot wait for the next volume to hit the stores!
