I tried, but couldn't like this book. It irritated me right from the beginning that there's too much prose. I want to read a graphic novel, not a hybrid that has more prose on a page than it does sequential art. But even getting past that, the prose is heavy handed and repetitive. And honestly, boring. I lived for the moments of art, but even that fell flat (the people are drawn really ugly) and went almost nowhere. In my mind I kept comparing this story to The Spill Zone, which I loved, and it couldn't measure up. I could not find myself recommending this book to anyone.

This started strong, with a unique graphic structure and poetic prose. I was immediately intrigued. For the most part, I thought this mixed format and art style worked. But, there were big gaps in the story which should have been resolved; the ending was weak (and obvious); and the art failed to interact with the text about 25% of the time. Often times the prose structure moved into the territory of "picture book" rather than "graphic novel" (when I have to remind myself to look up from the text to see the pictures there's a problem). I liked the concept and the ambitious undertaking, but overall it felt under-done. This book could use about two more volumes to resolve the issues I have with it.

An interesting blend of graphic novel and novel. Lemire's art is great as usual, but Snyder's prose really shines in this one. A wonderfully deep look at memory, humanity, life, and where the future could lead us.

This one made me think. I enjoyed the mix of graphic heavy/text heavy pages. That ending though...
