I picked up a copy on Story Cartel last week. The description there recommends it for those who like Niel Gaiman. That is such a wonderful comparison. I really enjoyed it and it does have some of the feeling of Gaiman's American Gods. This is not a b ...more

I follow the guys a little bit due to their podcast and was a part of the kickstarter campaign for this book. It was quite interesting to see such a story get built in such a short amount of time.
