I'm in two minds about this. It's been sitting on my tablet since it was mentioned, and I've really been itching to read it.
I read it through last night, and initially thought it was a bit far fetched, and didn't appreciate certain aspects of it. But, I have a feeling this requires another read-through to fully appreciate.
The artwork is great, and the dialogue is nice and fluid (barring some parts where Logan seems to be speaking in stereotypes).
I never felt the urge to skip through, which is a highly positive thing, given my tendency to get bored easily.
As for the contents of the story, I want to give it another thorough reading before expressing any opinion.
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

Well, I'm really curious as to exactly what 'aspects' of this need a re-read to fully appreciate. Do re-read & tell me if I missed something (I have only read it once & that too at the time I bought the hardcover).

I guess the rapid aging (well for Logan) must be a case just like muscles or brains... you use it or lose it?

Anyways, I just sat down and read the whole thing in one sitting, other then heating up something small to eat. It kept me turning the pages like most Millar stories plus the art was fantastic.

And when you compare the art with that seen in Millar's 'Nemesis', it is even more fantastic, considering that McNiven was the artist is both the books.

Probably he drew Nemesis while travelling in a train or something! :laugh:

@Maddy: Inspired by this, someday I too will make a lousy manual & blame it all on the car's speed! :laugh:
