2.0 out of 5 stars From Hero to Zero :-( 25 Jun 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Zero Girl is in the mould of The Maxx in that we are dealing with an apparently normal situation and group of people (a high school girl and her feelings for her school counsellor) who suddenly have extra-normal events happening both to them and around them. In this case a "war" between Circles and Squares! This book then deals with the repercussions of these surreal events on the life of the girl and the effect it has on her, both in the short term and longer."
That's what I said in my review of Zero Girl - Zero Girl: Full Circle then continues the story some 15 years later. Unfortunately that's about where the similarities end. The story is sloppy and confusing, the new characters are unsympathetic (in the extreme in most cases) and the art appears rushed most of the time. There is also a very high percentage of large splash panels with very little dialogue making this a very quick read.
The feeling of disappointed is heightened by the knowledge that the first book was brilliant coupled with the very high cover price for this volume (is there any logic to DC/Wildstorm/Vertigo/ABC's pricing policy?).
In short, buy Zero Girl; buy it and give it to your friends that don't read comics; but unless you are a dedicated Keith fan steer clear of this sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars She's still getting a round 17 July 2006
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This takes place fiften years after Zero Girl One . Tim has a daughter now, Nikki, about the same age as when he first met Amy. She's also about as messed up as Amy was, and that's saying some. Like then-Amy, Nikki has a lot of questions about her emerging sexuality, but they're very different questions than Amy's ever were. Her friend Rat (as if Nikki could have real friends) probably has the answers, but Nikki's not asking her.

It turns out that Nikki is pretty special, too, as special as Amy ever was. Somehow, Amy reappears, and acts as the Nikki's counselor, or big sister, or guardian angel, or some such. That guard thing helps when Nikki's deceased mother shows up. I mean, most teeangers have trouble with their parents but this relationship really needs work - she wants to connect with her daughter, but she's just such a square.

The first Zero Girl had visual style, novelty, and flair. Although the visual style is a good as ever and the sttitude is there, the flair somehow flamed out.

If you're a fan of The Maxx, you'll get nostalgic looking at this Kieth artwork. The story is pretty good, too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first 9 April 2012
By L. D. Robwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Full Circle is one of my favorite comics. I enjoy it much better than the first because of Nikki and Rat. They remind me so much of people I've known in life that it hurt.

I loved the addition of new shapes, the statement that there isn't just good and bad, that there are things at play. I also love that Nikki is struggling with her identity and with coping with the loss of her mother.

This story is a perfect example of the Mystic Punk genre. It shows that DC let Kieth stretch a bit more and I am glad they did. He's a fantastic writer, though his experimentation sometimes leads him down dead ends. Not in this case, though.

One of my absolutely favorite books. The art work is as stunning, clever and emotional as Kieth's story is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zero Girl Rocks!!!! 21 Sep 2004
By The Continental Cripple - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been a big Sam Kieth fan ever since I saw The Maxx on MTV in high school. In fact, that animated series on MTV turned me onto the world of comics. And I'm glad because there is some surreal and twisted stuff out there. Zero Girl is one of them. If you are a fan of Kieth pick this one up. You won't be disappointed. Buy it now!
