Interesting story that would be a great explanation for LOST. Drawing and the quality of the publication is good.
Like reading a "see-once" movie Jan 9, 2008
After reading this and "Damn Nation" by Andrew Cosby, the best I can say about Cosby's writing is that his comics read like movies. It's almost as though he's using the comic book medium as a stepping stone to writing and pitching screenplays. Which is not a bad thing, actually, as his books are entertaining. But they're the kind of entertainment that falls into the same category as the "see once" blockbuster, much like Will Smith's "I AM LEGEND" -- sure, it was entertaining, but I didn't gain anything from it, and I definitely wouldn't watch it again.
So, if you want a nicely-paced, exciting story to read and then pass on to somebody else -- nothing profound, just an hour's worth of entertainment -- then this is a good book to kill some time with. If your taste in comics tends toward more than the superficial, pass on it.
