Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Everything you say here is dead on. I agree. But it’s strange – for me, the surprising element was that Fraction LET it just be chaos, spiraling to an… anti-conclusion? This was such an off-kilter way to “end” this arc, so different from the tidy endings of the previous two, that I found myself kinda loving the balls it must’ve taken for Fraction to hand over the reigns to the art team & NOT go for the neat ending. (Please note: Not in love with literal balls.) In a way that is just as odd as everything about this series, this fourth issue of arc 3 felt kinda perfect in its imperfection to me.

    But man, what a damn cliff-hanger, huh? They better get on to Acedia quick!

  2. Casanova is a HARD book to read, and takes a degree of dedication not needed in most books. The constant changes in space-time alone exercise my brain, too much sometimes. For as long as we had to wait for this book, I too was expecting more. Maybe when I sit down to re-read this arc straight through, with the other arcs for reference, my jaw will drop and the lightbulb will shine. Although the art was good, it looked rushed compared to previous issues, and the story seemed…lacking. The layouts were great (especially the unwraveling of Newman Xeno) but didn’t have the crispness. I’m really hoping that a little West Coast sunshine will give Casanova Quinn his cool back. More chicks and James Bond smoothness, less chaos confusion.
