    This book is an incoherent mess. It jumps around timelines, plots, settings without explaining anything. Even when I feel the book is trying to explain what is going on it does it in the most confusing and vague way it can. I read this entire volume twice and don't have a clue of what exactly happened. I'm giving it a 3 just because I loved the art. The character/monster design is fantastic and there are several unsettling grisly images that I thought were extremely well done. But as far as the story this is up there with some of the worst comics I've ever read.
