really liked it

I really wanted to like this more than I did. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy poring over every gorgeous panel, reading every bit of dialogue. But I just felt like if this had been a regular book, without the graphic novel eye candy, it would have been kinda thin on the plot. There was a lot of character development in flashbacks and such which really only seemed incidental to the plot, and I couldn't bring myself to care very much for too many of the characters.
That being said, it IS a graphic novel (ahem, comic book), and it is wonderfully drawn and has a lot of interesting stuff going on in the subplots. It's just that main plot that was harder to "get."
