    It took a bit to get into the rhythm of this series to understand the way things work in this particular time and place but once you had that things moved well. It's a solid little murder mystery piece with some really fun characters. Satya's someone you want to see more of with how her family deals with what happens here and just the city itself with the way it ends. I definitely liked that it didn't try to overly complicate things with two more issues as well. But the downside is that it's only four issues of awesome Aneke artwork as their stuff is just fantastic. There's a lot to like here and those that find it will likely enjoy it as a hidden gem for a good time to come. Read Full Review

And while the design of that future is an interesting one, it can't overcome how bland the mystery winds up being nor how thoroughly unlikable the protagonist is. Read Full Review
