It's true that our ongoing feud has put a distance between us.

I'm okay with that though, you've definitely changed for the worse! :P

Sigs are easy. You go into your profile and check the option that allows you to turn them off so that you don't have to look at that garish shit that people seem to think is clever.

Yeah, I always blocked sigs on the old software too, but I wanted to add the Jude swears to vote for Obama thing to mine for the first time and then go ahead and block them. But I was even blocking sigs in my own profile at first, long boring story.

I plead innocence to ignorance since it was my first time. And I bled.

I knew nothing about this going into it and obviously it's right in the middle of a story which is always hard to review but I will say this. I'm going to end up getting the trades because what I read interested the hell out of me. It was easy to pick up and figure out and the art was great. Nothing about this I didn't enjoy. What I would like to know is why while I'm typing this my words go from red to black and then back to red again. What the hell is going on around here?!

Just read four. I liked it a lot. There are some problems with it as a series, LG seems a little uneven as a character, but this issue was full of moments that may have been just a little genre cliche, but worked because they have made Garrison into a completely unreliable, impulse oriented guy instead of a cold calculating machine, which interesting given the sheer number of dopplegangers.

What a very strange book.
Having read all five issues, this is one of the most uneven books I have ever read.
What's really a shame, is that there is almost nothing worse than when a book goes exactly where you think it is going and instead of you being like hell yeah, you roll your eyes and go, whatever. That's the last two pages in a nutshell.
The opening pages are okay, with whats her name showing up on Lester as he is pulling the switch back into his clothes after stealing a guard's clothes last episode. Straight out of Star Wars, except it is a heck of a lot easier when you look like the storm trooper you are replacing. But then this is just the origin of Jango Fett and the clone troopers except set now instead of in a galaxy far far away.
But then there is the plane sequence, which stinks of a Harrison Ford Anne Heche movie, but works inspite of itself. You can even imagine Garrison being played by a Raiders of the Lost Ark era Ford.
Then there is the art. Francavilla is a great artist. He really is. Check out Zorro or Black Coat. They are great looking books. That shines through in some of the quieter moments here, but the rest feel and look horribly rushed. It is like he had a hard time keeping a deadline and his attention span.
This is the kind of book that deserves a middle of the road score. It is a neat enough concept and story and when it works it works, but when it doesn't it doesn't.
Story 2
Art 3
Overall 5
