Normally i don't really like graphic novels. I did like this one though. I found the story line very interesting, although the style is not my favorite

The art is amazing with the neon colors, the story is so-so.

[Image Comics] FIRST ISSUES: The Bad (Full review on the WondrousBooks blog.)

I’m on the ropes with this one. I could crown it “The Best of the Worst” but I don’t really know how to explain my feelings.

The thing is: the graphics are charming, if not actually beautiful, the detail in them is interesting, especially in the images with skulls and skeletons; the story also has enough potential; the characters are not horrible… But… I still don’t feel any particular interest or desire to continue reading the series. There is something missing.

As the biggest problem I would put the main character, who, albeit not being annoying, is not really interesting either. I have no desire to follow him around on his adventures and be invested in what happens to him.

There is a certain creepiness, though, that I did enjoy, especially in the goat-shaman scene. If the entire issue had been like this, Limbo would have definitely gone to my previous post.

Weird and weirdly compelling. Lovecraftian noir.

Unbelievably great art but the story isn't doing anything for me.

the art is electrifyingly great, all dizzy neon colors that stand out within the darkness of the story.
i swear i'm like a five-year old: if there isn't pretty art in a book, i don't want it!
this comic has:
*a girl who dances to pop music to communicate with the dead
*a Mexican setting, particularly a very eerie ''día de los muertos''
*taking things out of TVs!!! how very RAVEN CYCLE
*a Lana Del Rey-like cabaret singer

a captivating aesthetic, lots of crazy noir stuff going on. really liked it.
