    If you missed the first four-part volume of this series, I suggest you remedy that immediately. Bold, creative and utterly sublime, Coffin Bounds second arc shows no signs of squandering the freight train momentum of its first. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

If the past is any indicator, Watters seems to have a firm handle on the kind of pacing needed to keep things from getting too weighty.  Read Full Review
