I love this series (despite my rating, I'll explain later), and love Graham's work in general. The story now begins to focus on Old Man Prophet, who wants to stop the Earth Empire from being resurrected (against the mission of one John Prophet....). The story focuses on him bringing back the last remaining (surviving...) members of his old group, and some of his back story too. Now to explain my rating. The art style is without a doubt, an acquired taste. I loved it personally and it brought to mind the French comic artist Moebius. This won't be too everyone's taste. Those who love the artwork of modern superhero sagas, stay away....you've been warned. The story/plot could do with some coherence, but I wasn't put off by this. A lot of the concepts in the story are implied, and you are definitely left with some food for thought. A lot of the story is passed through narration, with not a lot of focus on dialogue. Old fans of Image series can also find a few homages too (particularly Supreme...) among the truly alien (and alienating) concepts and images through the story. Its worth noting too that you will have to read the first volume to truly get to grips with the story. You can't pick up from here even though a 'new' protagonist is introduced. You will either grow to love this series, or be left cold by it...
