Now, I've been reading this series a bit recently and honestly, it's just okay. The writing is fine, the characters are fine (I'm not really finding myself attached to any of them honestly), and the artwork is serviceable. It's just fine, but that's it.
Then I read the 2012 Top 100 Comic Book runs and saw that it was number 5 (found here). I find that surprising since I don't see what is so special about this comic. I read the reasoning in the article but it still doesn't convince me.
I'm not saying the series is bad or anything, I just don't see what is so special about it (especially since I read the first volume of Ex Machina and found it league above this comic). Prehaps I'm not far enough into it (just made it to volume 5 personally), so prehaps it kicks into high gear later on. Regardless, why you guys think its great? I'm curious here.
