Don't get me wrong -- like "Phonogram", this is a clever book with an interesting concept. (In fact, it's another story where the world of music collides with the supernatural.) I will definitely read further volumes, because I want to know more. (And it's a chance to see more McKelvie.) But aspects of it are confusing. Cassandra is a journalist, but also a theology scholar -- a skeptic, but also a believer. It's not clear how Laura came into this world, or why she is so quickly embraced by Luci. Once these young people learn of their destinies, do they just instantly become pop stars, or do they have to work their way up? What exactly do they do on stage? I often felt like there was some introductory volume I had missed, but there wasn't.
In brief: exceptional art, cool high concept, some narrative flaws. Still worth it.
I am so glad I did. It's amazing. The writing is incredible & the artwork is fantastic. Like any good book, it gripped me right from the start. I was really impressed at how much the story developed over 6 issues. I didn't feel like I was missing information, which I have experienced in the few comics I've read.
So for someone that isn't into comics but kind of wants to be, this has been a great stepping stone. Though, I'm already feeling a bit of the frustration of knowing I only have one more volume + 1 issue until I've caught up and have to wait for more.
Side note: my favorite gods are DEFINITELY Lucifer and The Morrigan.
You still here? What you're doing? Go read it !!!
I finished the first one with my jaw dropped and I'm going to read the rest ASAP
