The backstory for the Clown Jexter is told, and it is a marvelously inventive, original, and cohesive origin - three descriptive adjectives I'd feared I wouldn't be able to use for the series. With this sequence the entire epic premise comes into view like the bottom of a stilled-water lake on a cloudless day, and the excitement it garnered, for me, was second to none. A host of new characters within the Carnival are introduced and the series at last revealed its true purpose: one character's story will be told each issue, with a greater, epic arc building within and around each one, until the entire series comes together to form one massive, intricately laced tapestry."
