    The dream-like theme of the story is one that plagues the reader throughout the experience of Pop Gun War. Is any of this real? Is all of it? How much is just in Sinclair's head? The direction this book takes is not a novel one, what with stories like Through the Looking Glass and The Wizard of Oz having fantastic creatures and unrealistic events. The difference is that those have a definitive "real" world versus the "dream" world. This comic tale does not, which makes for an incredibly immersive reading experience. I normally don't like using half stars, but Pop Gun Wars falls between "Good" and "Great" for me, and that is a very fine line. Read Full Review

    Plot and dialogue wise this was not a strong book. It gets too surreal at times and makes little sense. The true theme of Pop Gun War: Gift isn't always obvious as well. However, that isn't to say that the book isn't without its positives. The art was strong and interesting to look at. What was negative, as far as the writing goes, was a positive with the art which was filled with weird and interesting visuals. Read Full Review
