    Now" What truly made this book as appealing visually for me was something I didn't think I would ever say: the lettering. I used to consider the lettering as being an important part of a comic book but it was not a make or break deal. In this story, Jim Campbell has nailed it with the lettering. We are dealing with humans and a number of animal creatures, all of whom can converse with one another. There are different fonts for each animal, giving it a distinct visual "voice" that I could hear in my head as I read the book.

    I think the pluses outweigh the minuses in this issue and at the end of the day it was enjoyable, that's something that's very important to any comic book. You can be well crafted with the writing and art, but if it's not entertaining and enjoyable on some level than it's a fail. I'm hoping that the third volume is quick to follow this series because it's a hell of a cliffhanger. If you missed the series you can probably grab back issues or digital copies or wait for the trade, but I don't recall seeing it solicited anytime soon. Grab the back issues and check it out.
