When I first read this comic, I went into it with absolutely no idea what to expect. I took it at it;a face value, and followed the characters along as the story progressed. I cried, and got mad, and got confused... but never for a minute did I stop enjoying it.
Milage may vary, and if you're not fond of Science Fiction then you might not like it... but I really adored it. It drops some Anvils, but these things happen.
The writing is intricate, the characters lovable, and the premise both goofy and almost disturbingly well though out. If you have the time, give this comic a chance.
