i'm familiar enough with Grant's writing to know it's multi-layered, complex, and reads much better upon numerous readings. the problem i had with this story is it referenced FAR too many obscure references for me to keep up with, and that really distracted from my enjoyment of the story!
the art is very beautiful (for all those who enjoy gore and splatter) and i did also enjoy the sub-text about just how screwed-up humanity really is.
but if you bombard the reader with one abstract reference after another, it just becomes very difficult to enjoy.
i understand this story was supposed to have an unsettling nightmarish quality. it even delved into the subject of dreams, which might account for some of the shifts in reality?
but never once in my own personal dream experience have i ever encountered specific music keys, or referenced the tarot, or heard people speak in the ancient language of the angels.
so that sort of tosses the dream theory out the window.
still i find myself compelled to find out exactly what is going on within this hauntingly nightmarish story, but so far on my second read-through (now in a collected edition) some things are a bit more clear what's going on, but i'm still not 100% certain.
you'll get your money's worth if you are a fan of Morrison's writing, as i doubt anyone will have a clue as to what's going on in their first reading.
but for casual readers i just can't recommend it unless you are already familiar with Grant's esoteric writing style.
i will say this, i plan to re-read this story yet again, though it didn't reach out and grab me the way WE3 did.
as confusing as Grant's masterpiece Flex Mentallo: Man of Muscle Mystery was my very first read-through, i still was able to take something out of it to make me want to read it again right away.
even Annihilator as abstract as it was, i still pieced most of it together in one sitting.
Nameless feels like it specifically went out of it's way to be confusing, and difficult to get a grasp of.
for anyone who's never read any of Grant's writing before and would like to check it out, i highly recommend WE3 and Flex Mentallo: Man of Muscle Mystery .
fans already familiar with Grant's style, you know what you are in for and will get your money's worth.
