  1. mega excited for this extremely fun book (so far at least)

  2. I wish this sold better, so I could drop it and trade-wait. This is great, but I imagine it’s going to read great when it’s collected.

  3. More please!

    @ottobott Why do you say that? It certainly has an "old," serialized feel that translates better to monthly reading. 

  4. @ottobott-curse the ‘double-edged-sword’ of buying single issues vs. dropping and trade waiting on low-selling, struggling indie titles; but that said…

    @praxjarvin-I have to agree with you there.  Both issues so far have had classic, albeit subtle cliff-hangers and the two issues each have their own separate "feel".

    Also, is it just me, or am I jumping to unfair conclusions in comparing this to League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?  I don’t mean that as a fault aspect, but I just wonder out of curiosity because I actually haven’t read LOEG.

  5. @prax, jwaesch – I’d prefer to read this in trade because A) The art is astounding – this is something I want handy on my trade shelf and B) the cliffhangers lose some of their momentum due to their lateness of the book. If it was a monthly, I think I’d find the monthly more satisfying, but given how long this has been sitting on my subscriptions list, it feels off that we’re only just past introductions.

    Bare in mind I’m also the kind of guy who didn’t start BSG until after the series is over because I didn’t want to have to wait a year + between seasons.

  6. Great issue. I’m loving this book. Fun on a Bun. 5/5 

  7. Man i have laughed out loud while reading a comic until Jules handed that guy his car and told him it connects the call directly to his brain.  It was the matter of fact way it was said  killed me.

  8. Ah, Mystery Society, you’re one of my favorite current books and were SO close to being my POW…until I opened The Unwritten. Damn you Choose Your Own Adventure Nostalgia!
