|About the Book|
Well, this is a classic series that has a LOT of strengths, but isnt really all that interesting to read. Its heavily satirical, violent when necessary (and sexual when not), its got complicated plots that treat the reader like s/he has a brain and can pay attention, and has a really, really detailed world. The art is great and unusual, with a heavily stippled look and very interesting panel work and layouts. Like I said, I can say a lot of great stuff about it. And for the time it was written, it was clearly very forward-looking. But, having said all that, it is a little tedious to actually read. But I guess thats how a lot of great books are.
