I have given non-comics people NXM to read and they really dig it until Quitely ends his first run.
(I like to think that this is in part because they can perceive just from the artwork in the following arc how big a turd Van Sciver will become in subsequent years.)

i think quitely's work does seem very legible to non-comics-readers in a way that is pretty unusual, so i'm not surprised to hear that, really - probably doesn't help that much of the nxm art post-quitely is pretty ugly and murky iirc
my wife loves superman from the reeve movies but doesn't care about comics much; however, she she did come with me to the quitely exhibition at the kelvingrove museum and ended up being impressed enough to buy a fairly pricey limited print of quitely's superman flying over kelvingrove, which now hangs proudly in our living room

Yeah, Quitely is the rare double threat of A+ draftsman and A+ storyteller.

Anyone know an ETA for Jupiter's Legacy v3?
