I just read through the chapters too. I thought it was starting a bit slow but it really sucked me in. The art style really matches the moods you're trying convey and it'll be interesting to see how you tie in his past into the rest of the story. I especially like the flashback transitions to keep the narrative on the main character.
I checked out your kickstarter and it looks like this book will be very deep, but I wonder if your kickstarter goal is a bit ambitious. It looks like it'll be great though, good luck!
