it was ok
Read in July, 2011

The artwork is showing some signs of improvement as the series progresses, but the dialogue is still mostly abysmal and resorts to cheap uses of cultural referents to hammer home metaphorical points (a sign of a lazy author). The plot is progressing fairly well, but the deficiencies in the story leave me unsure if I will continue. The one aspect the writer excels at is in creating cliffhangers, but anyone schooled in comics should be an expert in that device by now--a device that alone is not enough to sustain much interest.
