I love this comic so much I'm intimidated by trying to explain why in words. Just read it, ok? Fiona Staples' art has this ethereal, spastic lure, and the storyline is addictive like no other comic being written right now. Look at page 1. Yeah it's ok if you want to sit down on the stairs and read it. Yeah, just read all five volumes and then read them again. Then come find me so we can rave about it together!
