4.0 out of 5 stars Spoiler Free Review 23 Mar 2009
By Rolacka
Format:Hardcover
Many of the reviews for this product are actually for other volumes of this series, so check that when you look at other reviews.

I really enjoyed the story. Every chapter/issue ends on a cliffhanger and the characters are interesting, if not fully explored yet. There are lots more reviews if you look around on the internet and I don't want to give spoilers so I won't go into the plot (though I'm sure you know the basic premise).

I really really enjoyed the artwork. While I agree with the other reviewer who said it is simple, I disagree that that is a negative thing. In a lot of ways this series is a bit like a soap opera with a focus on character, and I think the art really allows for this focus on characterisation. I would recommend checking out the art if possible to see what you think.

The product itself is pretty nice. It's oversized, contains I think ten issues (I might be wrong on that though), and the paper is not glossy like marvel oversized, but is quite thick so it does feel like a good quality product. The dustcover is papery too, rather than glossy which I didn't think was too good, but it doesn't matter too much. The colours are crisp and clear, and are better than I remember the colours being when I glanced through a TPB to see if I would like the art (I can't stand art I don't like. I wouldn't read a series with a writer I like if I didn't like the art).

I recommend trying this series. I really enjoyed it. The second volume is out June 09 so you won't have too long to wait until you can continue the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping TV You Can Read 1 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the culmination to a good series, always interesting, although - like the TV series the writer is now involved with - not every "episode" is a strong one.

I expect, if the US TV networks will buy a series with only one male character, this will be a TV series soon, hailed by all as the new Lost or Heroes.

Publication was delayed - by the publisher, not Amazon - and, like another reviewer, my copy has 20 pages printed upside-down, but these minor irritations aside it is a good finale with shocks, surprises and a satisfying ending for all the story lines. No hanging threats of further issues, thankfully.

The artwork is not in itself beautiful or remarkable, save for the sheer quantity of pages over ten collected editions, and really is there to illustrate the story rather than enhance it like, say, Dark Knight Strikes again or 300. That said, it does the job very well.

Be aware it must be read in order, unlike the various X-men or Batman comic series, so make sure you start with Vol 1. By the end, I realised I had spent nearly 80 on a comic book story. That's quiet a commitment, way more than I'd spend on a DVD box set, for example.

So although I liked it and I heartily recommend it, be aware it can be an expensive thing to get hooked on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heading along 17 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Apart from the usual brilliant characterizations and some different artist who manage to add a new flair without too much distraction, this volume mainly feels as if it is just there to push the story towards a finale. The two origin stories at the end are very well done but feel a bit out of place in their addition. A decent continuation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up! 6 May 2012
Format:Paperback
Things tend to slow down a bit here and this volume is very dialogue and exposition heavy. There is still action and suspense, and sex robots, but some very wordy pages too. A lot of this volume is taken up with Dr Mann's back-story as we get to know all about her childhood and the complex lives of her parents.

The art, by contrast, really shines. The colours are incredibly rich with some beautiful shading and some exquisite fine detailing. There are some neat little touches such as a clever reflection and a thrown object leaving the frame. It's as if the artist is trying to smuggle creativity in under the radar.

This does feel like one of the weakest volumes so far but it is testament to the great writing that even this deserves a Thumbs Up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking... 1 Nov 2010
By G M
Format:Paperback
What an excellent series, easily one of my favourite comics, ever! And as a final issue, this works well to get a lot of the loose ends tied up and give you an actual conclusion. Unfortunately, not one everyone will be happy with.
I have to give it 4 not 5 stars because i really feel cheated and angry by the resolution of Yorick/355's storyline. I feel as though the writer, Mr Vaughan, boxed himself into a corner and was not sure how to resolve their relationship. This even seems to be hinted at by the writer himself!!! As he refers to the 80's TV show 'Moonlighting' and its failure to deliver after initially giving the audience what it wanted. This appears to be a case of the writer 'excusing' himself before writing the ending...
This might seem cryptic as i do not want to spoil it for those of you still to read it. The artwork as usual is excellent, expressive without being showy or overblown. Read it, see for yourself and ask yourself whether that ending is a cop-out or a genuine convincing resolution...
