Comic book, 2011
This issue picks up the pace a bit from this series’ dreamy opening, which is neither a good thing nor a bad thing. It’s got all the outstanding qualities of its predecessor, and it has one of those ideas in it that’s so good you can’t believe you’ve never seen it before. Can’t give credit to the artist for that though, as this is a cover, or a remake, of a piece of manga from 1979. How close it hems to its source material I do not know. I heard the artist remark that the next issue turned out unexpectedly long which makes me think it can’t be a direct translation, so who knows. I’m reserving my thoughts about the story until the conclusion. Until then, Jesus this thing is pretty.
