really liked it

Another excellent entry in one of the best comics currently out there. The basic plot of this series- 'Guy finding out about his secret past as the star of a series of young adult fantasy novels'- would be enough to sustain an interesting comic, but Mike Carey uses it to explore the entirety of literature and storytelling throughout history, from Twitter to 'Moby Dick'. The art is grounded in vibrant realism, even as it expresses everything from various literary universes, evil wizards, and the collective unconscious. Unpredictable and lushly imagined, this series could go anywhere in the issues to come, and I'm definitely along for the ride.
