    Sean Murphy continues to be the true star of the book. Morrison's finest collaborators are the ones that can regularly match his imagination and wit with their pencils. Murphy is quickly elevating himself into this lofty bunch. His renderings of the fantasy world never lack for energy or imagination. His scenes set in the real world are suitably dark and dramatic. In short, there's very little not to love about this book. Read Full Review

Its the flurry of unparalleled innovation that youve come to expect from the industrys most creative writer. Read Full Review

    This book has everything going for it: Great creative team, potentially great story, etc, but after issue one and two, I feel as though it's another one of those books I'm just not excited to read anymore. I can't recommend you go out and buy this book, but I'd definitely say borrow it from a friend. Something needs to be done quick because I'm losing interest in this book. Read Full Review
