This series has a lot of moving parts. This is probably one of the least friendly series for new readers to "jump on" at the beginning of a new arc considered all the arcs tie in to each other. That being said, Priest is such a talented writer and the art has remained consistently good. Catch up on trades before reading single issues, but this is a series you should definitely read!
