I remember loving this, although it was over a decade ago since I last read it. IIRC it's a well-drawn and well-plotted coming-of-age story and at the time it made me think, why aren't more comics like this?
At the same time I kind of put it alongside the Lapham Batman story, City of Crime, as a really exciting longform story where the author seems to be above sticking the landing on the end of the story.

E.g. It's 11 issues of complicated plotting followed by a will-this-do final issue
