Clean air & water please
I actually dislike this series thus far. So I am convinced that it is laced with some sort of drug that makes people want to have it.
Seriously. I don't know why, but I've tried and gotten #1 and #3 (#2 is still sold out wherever I try), but I really don't like this. I mean it's okay, but nothing special. And yet, when a new issue comes out, I feel that I must have it! And reading some articles on it, other people apparently just looking at it, feel the same, knowing nothing of the interior art and/or story.
Maybe it's my habit of wanting 'indie' comics more than some other well known books and creators all the time, but I still don't really know what attracts me to this. Again, I think someone is putting drugs in the paper or making psychadelic images in the covers to make me want this, even though I know I don't like it.
I like this for the characters of the kids coming into the school and their interactions.
But, I do think that there is such a buzz about it, it makes people want to get it. This can be good for getting a wider audience for the comic. But, not everyone will like the story. I don't personally care for the horror elements, but I will continue with the story if the characterization and the humanity of the students (with the bits of humor in the dialogue) remains.
