The art is very nice! It alternates styles every issue, switching back and forth between two very different types of illustration. The contrast showed the difference between the two worlds in which the protagonists exist.
The story is intriguing as it shows parts of the Poppy universe we have seen in her videos for a long time now. I believe it's a sort of explanation of her current state.
Aside from that novelty of portraying the story in an unexpected medium, the story itself is somewhat forgettable. Poppy is an interesting character but she doesn't really do much or encounter a character arc. The main protagonist is a detective who represents a skeptical perspective toward fame while another protagonist, a sort of anarchy activist guy, represents the obsessive devotion to Poppy, the representation of fame. These are interesting characters to contrast but they don't really interact in an interesting way. The anarchist character is too much of a stereotype to learn anything and is mostly just frustrating to endure. My curiosity kept me from being too bored to get through it but as of now a second reading doesn't seem worthwhile or plausible.
I am curious what the continuation of this story will entail but I won't be in as big of a hurry to find out as I was for this one.
Whether the story is meant to be the true story of Poppy, a creation myth, or simply another avenue of Poppy's unique brand of story telling, its something any Poppyseed would benefit from.
Regardless of whether your an old fan or new, the story is fun, witty, and had unique art and writing style. I'd recommend this not only to Poppy fans, but anyone who is interested in sci-fi, occult fiction, political commentary, etc.

Es de pasta dura, cuenta con una sobrecubierta con un dibujo de Poppy que es totalmente removible (existen 3 versiones de dicha portada) dejando al descubierto un diseño un poco más minimalista.
Incluye un CODIGO QR IMPRESO que te redirige a Bandcamp para poder escuchar el ICU (Music to read to), dicha música es ambiental y se supone es para que sea escuchada mientras lees el libro, son aproximadamente 30 minutos de música y alcanza aproximadamente solo para los dos primeros capítulos del libro (dependiendo de la velocidad de lectura de cada uno). Realmente si ambienta la lectura y recomiendo escucharla mientras lees.
Realmente vale la pena leerla a pesar de estar en inglés, la historia es entretenida, el final es tan confuso como sus videos, pero si aclara muchas dudas respecto al personaje de Poppy.
