I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I can't believe this is over. So, so sad :( I've ordered volume two from the library, but I will be itchy with anticipation until it comes. Dammit!
This was brilliant! It's like this huge mashup - politics and religion, old and new (futuristic old west) - and then Hickman threw in the Native American mythology as well as the four horsemen of the apocalypse. It kinda sounds like it's too much, but it's not. It all ends up blending perfectly. Because the politicians are waging a religious war with each other to try and bring about the apocalypse so that it all ties together. Add to that fact that Hickman writes with such confidence that he makes it work, and he makes it look effortless.
Plus, there's this:
I want Wolf to get Crow. And there is something about the way that Crow, the woman there, is drawn that just draws your eye to her. She's stunning, not in the 'oh, hot comic woman way', but in the black-versus-white drawn with such aesthetic precision that she's stunning way. (Plus, I just loved Crow and Wolf. I think they may be my favorite characters.)
And if I try to say more, I'll just ramble incoherently. Wants more. Wants more now, please. Dear Primus, what has humble bundle done to me? I have a feeling I'm going to adore all the comics they sold me -_- Must not spend hundreds of dollars on the rest of the series in one day.
