I have read this for the first time becuase my former LCS didn’t have 1 and 2. I found # by accident on my new LCS. It was the last copy.

So I jumped on number 3, so maybe I’m not seeing this the way most of you do.

It’s a great read overall. Do you think this series is good enough for me to hunt the back issues?

I agree with the others that say the pacing is too slow. Nothing really happened much. It was like a small amount of butter spread too thinly. I think Lemire’s style is great, I can see his technique clearly on effect but I just thought he just went too atmospheric.(or maybe this is really how he writes. IDK)

Look at this wikipedia entry:


See how the summaries are getting shorter and shorter?

Lemire better pick up the pacing.

with just one issue, I actually think Lemire should only release in trades. With his style (or overstyling) here, I think he shouldn’t stick to the issue format . His talent will just be overlooked.

I can see what he’s trying to do here, but this just makes us look forward to the next issue instead of ‘living and savouring’ the moment while reading every issue.
