Vertical remains an awesome publisher. This book... I'm not really sure how to feel. At first, I thought I hated the art. By the end of the book, I thought it was perfect for the subject matter. I'm not sure that I really understood the setting or the world, maybe because I missed it, maybe because the author felt it was unimportant. Either way, it was the relationship between the two main characters that really drove the book for me. I found it disturbing, sad, gross, and oddly compelling. I've read it twice, though I don't think I would recommend it to others.

Btw, there is a scat + rape scene in this book that is about as vile as anything I've seen in comics, so bear that in mind...
