it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy-scifi, books-reviewed, action, graphic-novels
Read from January 19 to February 07, 2012

I put off reviewing this graphic novel to give it a fair shake but my feelings haven't changed. I found the main character to be chaotic and without much in the way of morals and most of his attempts to be funny just turned out crude or got a question mark for me. The artwork felt jammed on the page rather than flowing nicely. There were certainly some interesting ideas within but I found myself struggling in the latter 20% of the the graphic novel. I will give the second volume a chance but I don't have a lot of hope for this series.

ARTWORK: C plus to B minus; STORY/PLOTTING: C plus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B minus; OVERALL GRADE: C plus to B minus; WHEN READ: January to early February 2012.
