I’d been hearing good buzz about Ewing on the web-spaces from Jeff Lester and Graeme McMillan (whose Wait! What? is a podcast you should listen to if you like to hear two smart people talk smart and funny about comics). And this is a very good book. Yeah, I liked it enough to put up with Greg Land art. It did a good job about making me both get what makes characters I don’t know very well tick, and made me care about them. Also it had one very, very funny moment near the end. But yeah, this is a good comic, random passersby. But if I can’t convince you (let’s face it, I’m just some schmuck up at 4 AM on tumblr), here’s a little afterword from Al Ewing himself.
