    I really have been loving this series. I think this metaphorical take on our own world and how some unity might lead to long term survival is interesting but not over the top. I really like the slight modifications to the characters, updating them but not uprooting them from continuity.  And the art is just energetic in a way that is hard to describe. Those riot pages just sing. I really like how Oeming conveys the anguish on the faces of the characters.  Read Full Review
