Michael Hague may be a talented illustrator (although you'd never know from the scratchy adolescent-looking work in this book), but he does not have the graphic novel format down. Passage of time is particularly poorly managed, with no visual indication of whether hours, days, or even weeks have passed between panels.

The entire thing seems condensed. I kept checking to see whether this was originally a serial comic book, and things got chopped out when they made the graphic novel out of it. New plot elements and even characters appear, and are accorded a significance that is mystifying to the reader.
