it was amazing

This has got to be the prettiest comic book of the year. At the very least, it's got the prettiest PEOPLE in it.

I don't normally buy collections of comics that I read when they came out in single issues, but this was well-worth double-dipping. (Triple-dipping, in fact, since I spilled a whole cup of coffee on the FIRST collection I bought -- not so thrilled about that part). The story, about the intersecting lives of a group of English club kids during one night at a dance party, benefits from being read together to see how all the stories bounce off of each other. Re-reading also helped me get my bearings with the music references. Writer Kieron Gillen's copious (and occasionally snarky) endnotes aren't really necessary to understand the story but they're kind of fun.

Informational: he trade paperback has some nice extras, but they're not the same ones as the single issues had.

Also, I <3 Silent Girl.
