This book was difficult for me. ON the one hand, I loved the artwork, and many of the battle sequences (and more than a couple of the characters) were really cool. Also, the concept is something with a lot of potential (seems like the bad guys should get away at least some of the time).

On the other hand, it was all presented in such a... I guess juvenile is the word I'm searching for. The constant swearing, the random acts of violence (all seemingly inserted just to have it there), the 'bad for bad's sake'... it all seemed kinda forced. How the book preaches to you is exactly how you describe it; it's simply not as deep as it wishes it was.

I really enjoyed this one. The "holy two idiots getting eaten by a giant octopus!" part was funny as hell, and Mr. Rictus is a great villain.

I can't decide if I like this book or not. Like Relaxing Dragon said, the art is great and the idea is interesting. But I can't shake that feeling that its a preteen male fantasy gone wild. I could take it as satire but it seems to take itself a little to seriously to be that. Maybe I am just getting old.

I think it's an incredible comic. There are so many great villians that are only in a panel or two.

I read this recently and really enjoyed it. Juvenile fantasy turned up to 11. It's a good reminder that comics can be enjoyed while your brain is in neutral.

I picked up the TPB not to long ago and read it. I liked it but it did leave me wishing for more. I guess more of true ending rather than a guy a yelling at me about how I suck.
