    I apparently enjoyed issue 5 but I can't tell you what about it I liked, but that's why my rating was rounded up to 3 stars even though it's definitely closer to 2. I liked the idea of this series - the setting, the genre, the time period ... but the story was really difficult to follow. It had too many moving parts and characters that weren't fully fleshed out. I constantly forgot who was who even with the short summaries of people in the beginning of each issue. For some reason they just would I apparently enjoyed issue 5 but I can't tell you what about it I liked, but that's why my rating was rounded up to 3 stars even though it's definitely closer to 2.

I constantly forgot who was who even with the short summaries of people in the beginning of each issue. For some reason they just would not stick in my memory, which made the mystery really confusing. It's too bad because there aren't many series like this and it's quite unique, but it just really fell short. Individual issue reviews: #5 | #6 | #7 | #8 | #9 | #10 Total review score: 2.58

    This book and it’s excellent forward by David Choe feel like being let in on an experience I would never otherwise be privy too. My reading retention being what it is I didn’t remember as many of the clues from the first volume as would be ideal but I suspect I’ll be reading both volumes together in the not to distant future. The end of this volume makes a promise I certainly hope is true.
