So I will start this out by saying I’ve never been the biggest fan of time-travel stories, but that said I really wanted to like this comic. And I did enjoy it to an extent. The bright art style and trippy multi-reality sequences are a lot of fun (so long as you’re not thinking too hard about paradoxes). 

But the letdown is the characters themselves. The antagonists are cartoon bad guys and love interest Ano is rarely more than an emotional prop for the protagonist’s own arc. There’s potential here but it’s not realised in a way that gave any sort of emotional payoff to me as a reader.

That was a very fun read! and at the same time, I'm not sure I understood it all... It's a lot at once, and the timey wimey is strong in this one! But the art is amazing, and at its core it's really a message of hope, and asking us all to "pride up" and break the loop - the cycle of abuse and discrimination and death. It packs a punch, to say the least.
The one thing I'm quite... annoyed at, let's say... is that, despite the strong anti-racism that is weaved through the book, the big baddie is a Black woman, with very strong conservative views... and that didn't sit well with me. Wouldn't be the same issue if others were Black (other than the symbols like Malcolm X etc. which aren't really characters and are openly referred to as symbols).
