Start at the beginning, of course, but whatever you do, read this comic"this series is not to be missed. Read Full Review

    Relay continues to have interesting ideas but has another uneven issue where the execution leaves me feeling disconnected from it. This is how I felt for a lot of the first issue as well whereas the second one felt a bit more grounded in a kind of Outer Limits way that I could figure out. Here, it's kind of all over the map in some ways, making leaps that I can't make the connection with. Jad's narration has some good things to say and Clarke's artwork definitely gets to stretch here with how it's presented, but I'm in a camp where I feel like I'm missing the point because of how it's executed.
