I wasn’t sure what this book was actually going to be about, but since it has turned into a Mod Squad meets some really trippy modern-wave British storytelling about artwork that comes to life and it’s drawn by Mike Allred, I figured it would be a book worth sticking with. And I was right. This has been a solid first arc, with some really gorgeous visuals (like the room full of people turned into artwork) and with some really big things on the horizon for future stories- like Reggie’s dad being some big bad in the living artwork underworld, and having a slenderman-meets-Nosferatu assistant. I loved how the villain showed off her work of changing the Mona Lisa into some cubist/vaguely abstract work of art, and the people who saw her did the typical art critic thing of looking at it as something to talk about rather than being upset by it. The colors in this book are impeccable, with is nothing short of expected from a series that focuses so intently on the art world, and the story is fairly well crafted, but this issue wraps up the first arc in a bit of a “too easy” manner for my taste, and we get a softer ending than I would have hoped. We do have a big reveal at the end, which sets up big things for the second arc- PLUS there are still plenty of unanswered questions, so that is something to keep people drawn into this title.
