Anyone else reading this? I've read the first two issues and think it's pretty great. Love the concept, like epic old school anime flicks like Akira mashed up with Judge Dredd, Water World (in a good way) and Kurosawa samurai shit. Great, gritty dialogue and kick-ass, highly-detailed artwork. Y'alls should get on this. It looks like the early issues of this could be pushing up in value on eBay, etc.:

Issue #3 was out this week, gonna get through that this weekend:

Issue 3 keeps the quality up damn high. It's interesting how different the setting is now that the main characters have made it to Japan.

You forumers should give this book a shot, it hits all the right notes. Here's the cover to #4:

Whoever told you that wasn't paying much attention; there was tons of action and entertaining dialogue in the first issue. The initial setting in Los Angeles, which is a water-logged chain of islands run by psychotic freaks addicted to violence, technology and porn like they're drugs was pretty cool.

Really hate the black background covers, though. Same goes for Black Science. Hate those white banners they have to just take up space. But I love Murphy's art ever since his American Vampire run. Might have to give it a shot when the trade releases.

It's funny you mention that, because the backgrounds in the interior pages are typically beautifully illustrated. I mean, how could your jaw not drop at this?
