I've always had a very strange reaction to books like this. On one hand I admire and appreciate the attempt to do something different and to approach a mainstream superhero title from an "art first" perspective, but at the same time I can't help but feel that when superhero titles move too far away from their action-adventure/pulp-fiction roots, that they lose some of their charm. This is particularly odd and troubling since I'm a regular reader of Saga, which I enjoy immensely. I can and do enjoy this sort of thing outside of the superhero genre, but have a very hard time accepting it inside said genre. Anyone else have this problem?
