This issue is one of the finest conversations about how modern parents react to children being children that I’ve seen in any medium.  It’s not preachy, it’s not dry.  It’s just a great example of how Americna culture (though I’m aware that this country is supposed to take place in Europe right now) treats its kids as adults.  Mainly, imagination is viewed as psychosis, and many children who don’t buckle down and react to things in “grown up ways” are often medicated and/or sent to therapy.

This was not exactly the direction I assumed this story was going, and I think it’s fabulous that it’s hooked this way and, based on the previous hooks I’m guessing that it will hook away from this storyline in the next issue or two.

This may be the only series that I’m reading that I would recommend in issue form over trade.  I’m very curious to see if the turns will seem too drastic in collected form, or if it might just seem schizophrenic.  Issue by issue, it’s fun to sit down and be surprised by a different angle to the story on a monthly basis.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good
