    Saying all that, Dark Engine #5 won't be for everyone. Its style is not what you might call "clean," for example. In fact, it's downright filthy; or better, decadent – which is one of the reasons I like it so damn much. It'll also lose people who are used to being spoon-fed their stories, demanding you work harder for it. You don't chew its visuals or text, you fucking gnaw at them – that's how meaty, how rare this story is written and drawn. As such, Dark Engine may not be the easiest meal to digest, but that just makes it all the more satisfying when you do. Read Full Review

    Very complicated series. Issue #4 was the best one of the series and #5 just takes a different turn so to speak. This book is very hard to explain and maybe I'm just not smart enough to pick up everything without reading it 10 times in a row but it is a very intelligent and interesting book. The art is just phenomenal.

    The way I see it is I just think to myself "What the hell is going!?" but all I want is to find out.
