Wow! What a comic! Huddleston's art is MAGNIFICENT, loved loved loved the style. Hickman creates an amazing world and an amazing story. His usual pages of explanations are very useful to set the backstory, so then the main story doesn't feel overburdened. The actual main story is very captivating and the characters are great. I really can't wait for issue 2
