Trade waiting to see if this is "Good" Fraction or "anything he's written since coming to Marvel or before Casanova" Fraction.

Casanova is one of the five best books of the 21st century.

Fraction has been writing this for 3 years. I think he realizes how important it is that he bring his A-game.

Can't wait for this.

I'm a notorious trade-waiter, but I'm gonna get the issues of this and double dip.

It’s back! Hallelujah! Rejoice! This issue was just what you’d expect from Casanova: lunatic experimental madness. I just love how strange this book is and how Fraction and Ba aren’t afraid to try new things, like the weird red and black panels, or the caption boxes which show what the characters are really thinking. Too many comics these days aren’t willing to play with the form, but Casanova is incredibly playful. The sexy thing. The main plot in this issue (if you care about the plot, which you probably shouldn’t) is that Cass has been tasked with destroying the various alternate universes that he inadvertently created. We see loads of weird and crazy universes, and are introduced to the immortal phrase that is ‘Spaciotemporal Holocaust’. Awesome, and then Fraction starts to bring in back-story and the back-up from the last issue. I’ll need to re-read that one because I did not get that that guy was actually Newman Xeno. In general, it’s fucking awesome to have Casanova back, because there’s nothing else quite like it. Just buy it.

Enjoyed the comic. Found the letters a bit ingratiating.
