fucking beautiful. there are a lot of brilliant bits of this book and it's a phenomenal compendium of artwork. i particularly like the storylines where the main characters are animals (the ORAPOST adventure, the circus animals, and many other asides...). i found a couple of the storylines, including the one about the FBI, pretty inscrutable and boring. overall, i found the story to be a bit weak. the artwork has a stronger hand in creating a world than does the text--and it's unclear whether it is one world or an anthology of many. but that's okay. the mixed-media, collage, and detailed landscapes and general darkness fits with the overall ambiguity. i enjoyed reading it slowly and skipped chunks here and there. i definitely look forward to future works by hines.
