"Gross, brutal, bleak. I highly suggest the Compendium over the individual volumes, as it takes a good bit for the story to get rolling. If you're worried about spoiling the TV series, the graphic novel and TV show split very early on."
"The graphic novel published before the film, when Aronofsky had lost hope to be able to make the film. At times confusing and thin, it has some very good moments as it explores the relationship among life, death, and rebirth."
