    You Are Obsolete is not a new concept but I'm interested in the approach that Klickstein is taking with it. You can see some potential generational issues to navigate, especially in relation to technology, that might be outdated before it even hit the page, but with it set in the Baltics and playing to a different angle it could all work well in the end. Lyla's interesting enough from what we get of her but I'm just eager to see more of the town, the children, and how this tension is all handled. Bornyakov is definitely well-suited to handle this project as he's got some great character designs and captures the feel of the location really well, especially with Affe's colors for everything. It's haunting in that kind of original Fargo way in looking at the locations. Read Full Review

    Its well paced with good art and just enough creepy imagery and ideas to make it interesting, but it would probably be better to wait for the trade paperback. Read Full Review
