This compilation of the "Enigma" mini-series is one of my favourite comicbook works.
It was one of the first releases by the Vertigo line, created by DC Comics to publish comics focusing on more mature themes.
The story follows Michael Smith, a boring man with a boring life that has his world changed after encountering the misterious Enigma. An internal revolution will make Michael re-evaluate his principles: from the point of human life to his own sexuality.
Brilliantly imagined by Peter Milligan ("Shade: the Changing Man", "Human Target", "X-Statix") "Enigma" is a fantasy story, but one that never loses its human focus. The art by Duncan Fegredo ("Kid Eternity", "Girl", "Millenium Fever"), is also excelent. Very interesting is the evolution on Fegredo's style, that changes throughout the different chapters.
All in all, a classic.
