For the most part, I enjoyed the stories. The writing and the art vary quite a bit, which is both a strength and a weakness of this type of book. It makes it possible for a reader to be exposed to an array of creators and content, sampling small amounts that might launch them into a creator's other works.
None of the stories in this anthology were awful. The only one that really impressed me was "Spin" because it is able to tell a story and show the connection to a theme without using any dialogue or exposition. The art conveys everything the reader needs to know and does so wonderfully.
The book exists in a sort of limbo for me. I like the concept behind it, and most of the stories are pretty good. But it didn't leave much of an impression on me.
Spin: A silent comic on the connection of music and memory
Blam: An excellent metaphor on the effect of living with keeping major secrets from the people closest to you.
Junk: A story on how otherwise very good or benign things can become tragically devalued when a relationship dissolves.
