enjoying the first big tpb (I'd read individual issues of 1-6 awhile ago) - Moodles otm above. Not excited about this just dragging on aimlessly forever though...

It’s still good - up and down but much more consistent than Y or ExM or even Runaways. Actually it’s the only comic I’m being as a floppy right now - I think it reads better issue-to-issue. The single issues feel substantial enough (in part cuz of the art) and the cliffhangers are good.

I lost interest in this because of the big gaps, I'll wait until the whole thing wraps up and read it then.

Its pretty easy to catch up! Basically it's always just the three leads, whoever's chasing them, and a bunch of NPCs who might be trustworthy OR NOT. Kind of like the Walking Dead model, but without being fucking terrible.

Tbh you could skip the catch-up and just jump in wherever.

Halfway?! It's been freewheeling for at least a year before the hiatus.

I'd assumed it was ending much sooner, not least because they're running out of people to kill.

What do you usually enjoy in comics?

Entertaining melodrama.

Terrific character design, really good artwork.

I don’t even remember if it’s good. The cat’s great tho.

Larry Elleison (rogermexico.), Wednesday, 16 October 2019 22:27 (two years ago) link

It’s fun, it’s suspenseful, the art is spectacular, characters die but it’s never Walking Dead-style misery porn, and Vaughan gets the balance right between plottiness and character-driven meandering that eluded him for Y. It’s great, I recommend it!

^^^ This

But definitely read in trades, I would say.

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Thursday, 17 October 2019 00:36 (two years ago) link

As a trade reader, I wish I'd read in issues - every nine months I had to pick up the previous trade or two to remember where everyone was.

I was going to say "this is less of an issue now that it's ending", but I guess I just made that up - apparently the gap after 54 was just the half-time?

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 17 October 2019 08:36 (two years ago) link

I like the single issues because cliffhangers

I hear Paper Girls was excellent also

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 17 October 2019 15:38 (two years ago) link

Liked Paper Girls a lot. Nice sweetbitter ending, and fun characters along the way. As with The Wicked and the Divine, last trade just released, so you can read the whole series in one go.
