This book is masterfully drawn in a loose, scratchy style, but the story was rather superficial. With such a dramatic and tragic event as unexplained stigmata, you would think the central character's inner life would have been explored more deeply. Instead, we are left with long scenes of silent solitude and rain to fill in for any real emotional connection to this supposedly tragic hero. It's not exactly appropriate to say "show, don't tell" about a graphic novel, but I wished I was shown something more intimate and not kept at such a distance.
