I was expecting the science-fiction story line to be the main event.
Bryce Miller
The Lune brothers do an excellent job crafting the story and the art work is top notch.
H. A. Johnson
The similarities are enough to make me think he read Girls and saw a good plot device.

THE_SERIES:
Oh how prepared I was to hate the comic that always had a naked woman on its cover. Nothing but gratuitous sex exploited like everything else in society. Crowds drawn to the mention of t**s like moths to a flame. & then one day I stumbled upon the first issue posted on-line for free. I read it, ready to cringe yet curious of what it was really about. It began to a poem; about life's chaos, beauty, & ugliness to the scenes of sperm searching for an egg & a young man masturbating. `Oh boy, yet another erotica desperately pretending to be something deep,' I thought. But then I read the rest of the 22 pages & it was... amazing. Beautiful. Genuinely deep. An over-coming celestial sort of awe. All of my harsh prejudges were crumpled.
Its enigmatic unsettling tone matches to that of The Birds rather than that of Girls Gone Wild. That atmosphere alone reaches out & grabs you by your throat. I cannot praise it enough. It's one of those stories where if you say anything, almost anything at all, it will spoil so many of the twists that the series is famous for. But here's a hint. In the words that inspired the Luna Brothers themselves; beautiful monster. & it all begins with Ethan--the masturbating man, a 20-something nobody who has no luck when it comes to the opposite sex. To top it all off he's still in love with his ex-girlfriend. One ominous was-rainy night he has an emotional breakdown at a bar & is thrown out, but while driving home in a frustrated daze he almost hits someone: it's a frightened, naked, bleeding, breathtaking woman. & she's about to change more than just his world.
The deeper into the series you go, the more surreal & almost dreamlike it becomes.

Girls is the comic that got me back into comics after a long hiatus. I'd place it up there with Y: The Last Man (and a few others) in the category of recent comics that really exemplify why this art form should be viewed on par with movies and novels. The artwork and layout are terrific - the Luna Brothers have a real touch when it comes to visuals and this book really stands out. The setup of the story, the underlying mystery, and the conflicts (both personal and global) that develop are outstanding. I still think about some of the story twist moments in this book even though I finished reading it more than a year ago.

Girls was a fun read, the kind that you can't put down because it was designed to end in cliff hangers and new story branches with every chapter (so get all 4 volumes or get this complete series). That being said, it is very good at keeping you interested in what's going to happen next. The problem is that by the time you get your questions answered in every chapter, you feel a bit let down. I can't say that it is predictable, but the resulting feeling definitely seems that way. I can forgive the dangling a carrot approach, after all, Girls is a character focused plot. But I had higher expectations for character development and really digging down into their flaws/dilemmas. Well, this is where it gets really stereotypical and predictable. You have a cast of characters, each one playing to a specific stereotype, blatantly type casted and neatly packaged to fit their roles. This was what really kept me from enjoying Girls as much as I thought I should have. It was like an after school special with multi ethnic actors, making sure to have enough to cover the diversity basis. You have the village slut, the village idiot, the village wise man, the village chief, the love interest, the chinese lady with the bad english... I am being a bit harsh here, I think the Luna Bros did do a fairly good job of playing these stereotypes out. The signature snappy dialogue is here, the Ultra-esque artwork is still good and a thrilling storyline to keep things moving along. The character analysis could be deeper, but since I can't come up with better ideas in this review, I have to accept the fact that this is just the nature of the genre. I guess you just can't go into this expecting to be blown away by something new or with depth.Read more ›

When I first set eyes on the Luna brothers' artwork in the Spider-Woman: Origin book, I was motivated to hunt for more of their work. I tend to gravitate towards hardcover collections when it comes to graphic novels, so I was very pleased to discover the deluxe hardcover edition of Girls. The cost was rather off-putting, so I checked out the first issue for free on the Image Comics Web site. After reading that first issue, I was assured that the nudity wasn't just a ploy for fanboys. I really wanted to know where the authors were going to take the story.

The book was a really compelling read, although not for the reasons I had expected. I was expecting the science-fiction story line to be the main event. What made the book such a pleasure to read, though, was the well-rounded characters that adapted and changed as the story unfolded around them. The sci-fi story would be incredibly hard to swallow if that were all that the Luna brothers explored. But as a springboard for complex character studies, it works surprisingly well. The characters are dropped in an endless number of thought-provoking scenarios, and I found myself constantly asking what I would do in each character's position. It's quite an insane social experiment.

Unfortunately, while the character interactions are intriguing, the actual sci-fi string does feel a bit flat. Perhaps this is due to the Luna brothers decision to not explain what's happening in explicit detail. But the characters really wouldn't experience a monologuing mastermind in this world, so to some degree the reader experiences the events just like the characters would.

As for the deluxe treatment, I love the artwork in these pages and can't imagine not having the oversized pages.
