It's no wonder this book won the Eisner Award for Best Limited Series. I must state that when I first started it I wasn't expecting to like it but when I ended it I was surprised. The characters were very reminiscent of Watchmen characters without being a copy; so I liked that! The art was incredible! For me, with a graphic novel, the art can be a real turning point. The art and the story, as shown in Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art, must jive together and that they did. I was very impressed and plan to read the next one. I will say, if you're not a fan of blood and guts (you know...the way things really happen) then this book is not for you. Otherwise, dive in and enjoy this fantasy world.
