    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 2, 2017

    For the first half of the book, I wasn't a big fan of the story or the art, but after the story found its stride and I came around to the art style, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The pacing is more like a novel than a typical comic, even a collection, but it works. Leila Del Luca put together a story that could continue on if she wants, but works just as well on its own. This is a pretty good read if you've got some extra cash and want to read a complete, well-written story. Read Full Review
