it was amazing

The book that began my Matt Fraction love affair. A paean to Grant Morrison and indy rock that has no right be a good as it is. The art by Gabriel Ba (who also draws the improbably good comic by the guy from My Chemical Romance) explodes off the page with kinetic energy to spare and distinctively stylized line that hangs somewhere between "cartoony" and "I can't believe he can work that much detail in." Like Mike Mignola on really good drugs and with a better appreciation of sexy mod fashions and a more painterly (read: less inclined to draw everyone as variations on his same set of 4 or 5 stock characters) eye. Unfortunately the back matter in the individual issues was frequently insufferable.
