    This comic is truly a "graphic novel" as it combines narration done in past tense written in prose with minor illustrations during those flashback sequences interspersed with comic book sequences in present tense taking place in the far future after they have discovered a cure for death where people have been living basically as immortals for hundreds of years thanks to this breakthrough. The theme of death looms over both sections... while it isn't clear just where the plot is heading so far, t This comic is truly a "graphic novel" as it combines narration done in past tense written in prose with minor illustrations during those flashback sequences interspersed with comic book sequences in present tense taking place in the far future after they have discovered a cure for death where people have been living basically as immortals for hundreds of years thanks to this breakthrough. The theme of death looms over both sections... while it isn't clear just where the plot is heading so far, the writing and illustrations are well suited for each other. Enjoying the ride so far. Can't go wrong with scott Snyder or Jeff Lemire highly recommended

    I mean the art is wonderful. The prose is interesting and works most of the time but it often just makes it feel like an incomplete comic. It feels riddled with explanations filling in the gaps between panels and I can't say that I loved that. Also I feel like the character work and micro details took up all the effort from Snyder. Found the end totally lacking and the last book especially problematic. Good book but a bit disappointing and just slightly off the mark. Very interesting concept, bo I mean the art is wonderful.
