The cosplay cover features a woman I think I’m in love with, and the visuals are strong. I’m not particularly attached to either character, but this issue still managed to pull me in with some good ol’ fashioned storytelling (even if it is a little bit weird.)Matthew's Thoughts
This is a weird start to an issue because while there is a lot going on, there isn’t a whole lot of depth to the story. The art is okay, and I guess there is enough of a hook to get me to read one more issue, but it feels like there is a lot of padding in this story.Stephen's Thoughts
