If you're looking for short-term payoff from this book, you won't find it, and I can't deny that I'm tempted to stop buying the series and wait for the collected edition so that I can enjoy the entire story at my leisure. Still, Ellis and Larocca manage to make these chapters readable in their own right, and it's testament to the strength of the writer's characterisation that I'm interested enough to keep buying the individual issues which follow their gradual development. I have faith in Ellis to provide a strong enough payoff to make the slow-burn storytelling worth it, and there are still a few plot strands that I'm keen to see play out (in particular, the thread which deals with the HEX robot), but despite the high quality of the work from both creators, I can't say that this is the most compelling monthly comic book that I'm reading at the moment.
