I totally agree with this. FC has neat ideas and I really really wanted to like it after the first 3 issues, but something was missing. Then it just got worse and worse as it went along and the important things that were skipped and left in other books or that happened off panel, the characters didn't have unique voices, the emotional impact that should have accompanied various developments didn't exist, and the whole thing got delayed and ended up a huge mess. The editors, artist, and writer all combined to take neat ideas and make it fall apart.
Sins Past was just a horrible idea that never should have seen the light of day.
