I had been putting off reading this title as it was so far into the run that I couldn't catch up. Well the other day I bought the first trade to give it a try. And this is the best comic I have readin a loooooooooong time. To put it in perspective, I have a stack of books I like to read while "dropping the kids off at the pool" and I grabbed it thinking I would read a couple pages before going to bed,a couple pages turned into a couple more, and soon that turned into 45 minutes on the crapper finishing the book. One of the first times I have read a trade in one fell swoop. My heiney was asleep but it was well worth it to read that book. I will be getting the rest of the trades soon.
