Nate Powell, you excel at illustrating other people's work. I really loved the graphic chapters.

Cecil Castelluci, you have not quite mastered the art of writing a non-graphic-novel. A lot of confusing dialogue, a lot of non-necessary/non-literary word repetition, an over-focus, arguably, on Boyz. But an excellent grasp of creating complex young characters, and a bravely dark ending -- it really picked up near the end.

Regardless, this was uneven, but had its heart in the right, dark, place.
