Quentin Cassaday (aka Casanova Quinn) wakes up with no memory of who he seems to be. He works for an interesting guy, and has a cool chauffers hat. That's about all he knows. He soon finds out that someone is trying to kill him, and that strange occult symbols are showing up everywhere. This leads Quentin to a street magician who may know about what is going on. Things go from weird to weirder.
The backup feature 'The Metanauts' fits in, but the whole thing left me a bit off-balance. This is probably because I haven't read the first two volumes in the series. The proposed series will have volumes named after the seven deadly sins. Acedia is Latin for sloth. Perhaps if I'd looked that up before reading it, the story might have made a bit more sense. Nonetheless, there is something good happening here, including some knockout art. Just do yourself a favor and start from the beginning.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Image Comics, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
There seems to be a large amount of organisations with acronyms: N.E.T.W.O.R.K, E.M.P.I.R.E., A.C.A.D.E.M.Y., etc.., the majority of which appear in the comic-within-a-comic, the Metanauts.
Quite confusing in places (especially with unexplained flashbacks), it is quite engaging; some sex and violence. I prefer my comics more straight-forward
