Overall, I cannot recommend this highly enough.
It's a long framed book, made up of 300+ pages, a strong cover and sturdy spine. The pages are high quality and the coloring shines off of them. Physically, it is very nicely put together.
It's a very good story (my biggest complaint is that the murder that sets off the plot of the story doesn't make much sense). It is set about 50-60 years into the future in Los Angeles. Global warming has raised the ocean levels, marijuana is sold in Marlboro-like packages, the media has been nationalized and most significantly, the internet is gone.
My favorite character is the protagonist's grandfather - a miillenial-turned-senior-citizen who still shows the side effects of the prescription drugs that he was jacked up on at the start of the 21st century, has sagging tattoos (the current adults and teenagers don't), and so dearly misses the joys of the iphone and internet gaming. Vaughan uses him to comment on America in 2015. It's wonderful, funny and interesting.
