The writing seems more likely to be hit or miss. People looking for a linear story that's easy to follow and explains everything will probably be disappointed. The universe (Jodoverse?) is expansive, wildly imaginative, and unrelentingly bizarre. Quite often the logic behind what's going on is unclear and/or unexplained.
it's also amazing. I don't really have a good word for why it's so good ("dreamlike" and "surreal" come to mind), but if you're willing to sit down with it and just *experience* it I think you will probably have a very good time. Do not rush through it; take the time to digest each page before moving on.
This book represents both writer and artists working at the zenith of their powers. Affecting comics.
I spent an hour sniffing the pages and looking at the artwork when I first got this, the publishing is VERY quality for the price. Built in bookmark just adds extra value and makes keeping track of your place so simple. If you're a fan of Jodorowski, Moebius or good graphic novels, sci-fi adventures or intellectual, philosophical discourse hidden in a good story, you should get this. You can miss out if you want, but it's totally worth the price to hold this and read it.
