    Jeff Lemire is a excellent writer, and his art gets better and better. Love the water color painting he does. Amazing! This is a very deep and personal book. I don't like to spoil the book at all. If your a Lemire fan you definitely should like this, and it collects 1 through 5 for the 1st arc. Very emotional book as well and Lemire's style of art goes perfect for this not so prefect family? A must read for any fan of a family oriented book about a family with tragic, or hidden secrets check ✔ it out, especially if you are Jeff Lemire fan! What can't he do? I cannot wait for the next arc.
