This book came highly recommended by a colleague whom I respect, so I figured I'd pick up my first graphic novel since Betty and Veronica (who I used to love). I made it half way through until I had to give it a seventh grader who was determined to rip it from my hands. I'll be sure to pick it up again when she's done. It's fascinating.

You can't tell who is good and who is evil. You really have to question "what do i think is good?" and that is interesting. The fantastical stuff is fun to imagine but a little much for me. The nudity is startling and unexpected. The artwork is flat for me, but for a graphic novel, I suppose it meets expectations.

Looking forward to getting back to it.
