Guy seems like an overall unlikable person. It's not necessarily a bad thing, I've read and watched lots of stories with that sort of protagonist. With this story it's hard to say whether it's a good thing or a bad thing.

Overall, I'd say this issue wasn't bad. I don't think its my thing in the end, the art style is a type I usually don't like and it takes a really good story for me to get past that. It's interesting enough I guess, but I can't say that I'm anywhere near interested in reading the next issue.

This will get a 5 out of 10 from me.

I think writing a character who starts at a point of unhappiness is kind of the point. Whether you liked the Guy character or not, and I don't think the goal of this issue is to make you like him, I don't really think the character depicts someone who is "unlikable". Although there's certainly an argument to be made that Guy is unliked.

Well, yeah, I'm not stupid, I did kind of understand that. Whether or not he's unlikable isn't really the defining factor when it comes to why I didn't really like it. In the end, I found the story itself to be a little on the boring side.

Now you can go back to your brightly colored latent homosexuals in pajamas.


As soon as you get off your pretencious high horse. :P :wink:
