Gunnerkrigg Court is one of our group reads for July-August and can be read online here.

Antimony Carver has just started school midway through first year at Gunnerkrigg Court, which feel more like an industrial complex run amuck with creatures and oddities of all sorts than a school per se. This volume follows her early school experiences, including finding a best friend, some potential enemies, and a lot of unanswered questions.

Yeah, it builds nicely, taking its time instead of overloading the reader. I still think the first chapter's odd though.

It's almost like a completely different comic. Not just the drastic change in art style over time, but with tone, pace, etc too.
