Start, as we mean to go on, this is a great book.
This issue opens with a soiree and situations we have all faced before. The untethered word balloons highlight the bustle of a party, featuring friends, more than friends, social enemies and children watching in awe on the stairs.
Joelle Jones has writing and art credits with James S. Rich helping with the story. The pace of the story is a strength, with confrontations leading to further confrontations and ultimately, recognition of actions that need to be taken, if somewhat reluctantly.
The art is crisp with strong lines, helped by a muted colour scheme which seems to indicate a late 60’s era. Characters remain consistent throughout the book.
On the downside, some would say that there are elements in play similar to other stories such as The Long Kiss Goodnight. But it is the excellence of the production that has won me over. If this is your first foray into this book, do as I have and search out the two previous issues.
