Lives Up to the Hype
By Andy W , Jun 29, 2021
If you're a fan of comics or graphic novels (or at least interested in the medium), this is a must-read. For years, I'd heard the rave reviews, but never got around to reading it. Finally did, and for once, the hype was warranted. Easily the best comic/graphic novel I've read...probably my favorite book, period. Masterful storytelling from cover-to-cover, both in script and artwork.
