I get the feeling that Girls might be more rewarding for regular readers who have followed the book since its inception, and I understand that it might seem churlish for me to complain that the penultimate issue of a book which has been running for two years isn't doing enough to be new-reader-friendly. However, the confusion that would greet readers picking up the book for the first time could be avoided with something as simple as a recap page at the start of the issue. I'm sure that the promised payoff next issue for the various mysteries which have run throughout the book (the invisible wall which has sealed off the town from the outside world; the nature of the Girls; and yes, the giant sperm) will be well-received by loyal fans of the title, and I can imagine horror/sci-fi fans getting a lot out of the weird and wonderful world that the Luna bros. have created, but more casual readers might struggle to understand the appeal of the book.
