    The title and what I thought it was about initially turned me off to this. But the preview and reviews seem interesting. Going to pick this up in a couple of hours.

    I just read it and the review is pretty much spot on. I enjoyed it and I guess the title of the story is a bit off putting, but as far as set up issues go this one keeps you interested.

    I thought it was a little long in the tooth. Also the pacing wasn't to my liking. Anyone else agree? I think i'll give issue 2 a try but the first issue didn't sell me.

    Did you feel like the pacing was slow and the ending could of been reached within a lot less pages? I felt that way in the middle of the book, but it still did sell me.

    Yeah I felt mixed after reading the first issue. I am not excited about the 2nd issue, but I already bought 2 and 3 via DCBS preorder. I may dump it this next month. It just didn't do anything for me.
