Gorgeous art with a so-so story. I read Nat Love's auto-bio a few years ago and this reads pretty much like it, taking us from one "hey, look at how cool I am" tale to another. It's very difficult to develop an emotional connection to this guy as it's written, and I think there are a number of ways the authors could have played with Nat's story to make it more moving. Too bad, 'cuz I do think there's a great story to tell here.
