It's excellent, the artwork is some of the most intricate amazing stuff I've ever seen, like JH Williams Promethea level stuff.

The story is compelling too, I liked Blankets, but this is a whole other level.


Sounds really amazing then. It is in black and white or in color?

I finally broke down and ordered Fear Agent Library Edition Vol. 1. It arrived yesterday and unfortunately I have only had the opportunity to read the first 2 issues. So far Tony Moore's art is top notch and Remender seems like he is having a great time. Can't wait to read more of this book because it reminds me of good, old fashioned sci-fi greatness.

Moore's art is very consistent throughout the book.

Soon Remender will put his foot down at the WTF throttle. Give it 2 more issues :)

I did, he did, and it was AWESOME! I am absolutely loving this book!

For anybody who hasn't read it yet and likes old school sci-fi, I strongly recommend giving this book a shot.

Still to come. Clones and time travel!

Rememder does a great job in this retro sci-fi book.

It's a good read, and seamlessly blends autobiography and fiction into a very compelling narrative with some mystery at the center of it.

If you read it, you'll finish by wishing it were all true.

Yeah, the main story itself was absolutely amazing. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire ride. I just have a few more of the Tales of the Fear Agent stories to go but I am completely blown away by this book. Backup stories featuring art by Francesco Francavilla and Paul Renaurd? I can't believe that I completely missed this book when it was coming out. Damn, I don't want to wait until July 9th to get the second volume of the Library Edition! If the second half of Fear Agent is half as good as the first, it will easily fall into my Top 5 Comic Series of all time.
