An insane graphic novel. I think I’ll need to reread it for the second time but it was so satisfying that even though I couldn’t keep track of some of the plot lines, I got such a huge kick out of it. I wish someone made this into a TV show, or that Morrison wrote more in the series. The universe is so interesting, and I would love to explore it (and see more Anders Klimakkks, hahaha). Only after reading did I realize that Morrison is the guy behind Happy!, which I adore, and many other rad things. I definitely need to get more educated on comics and to read more Morrison. He’s got the exact kind of dry and dark humor that I love and find lacking in American stuff.
