I appreciate that Dickson was trying to do something different with this work (highly illustrated, but not quite a graphic novel), but it didn't quite work. The ideas he was working with could have supported a good book, but this was much too short and I feel like it was almost more of a summary or "Cliffs Notes" version of a good story.
