    Default The Seeds (Dark Horse)

    Did anyone else pick up issue 1 of this 4-parter? I took a chance on it today, and I'm glad I did. Unlike many other first issues, this one actually answered (or at least gave hints) some important questions about what was going on. I just hope there are still more mysteries to come.

    I bought it on a whim and... Just wow. Between this and She Could Fly, Dark Horse have some of the best minis starting at the moment! I absolutely loved this and can't wait for the second issue! I think it stands a chance of being one of 2018's best comics. The writing is spectacular and the art is beautiful, together they combine to create something perfect.

    Yeah, I loved it. Really looking forward to issue 2 and seeing where it goes.

    No surprise, but Aja killed it. Reminded me of what Mazzuccelli did on his City of Glass adaptation. Have to assume it was am imfluence.

    I, too, enjoyed this first issue. A lot is put forward, and some of it explained, certainly enough to base a series on. And yeah, looks pretty, too!

    I thought it was good. Nice art. The writing was purposefully obscure. But still just clear enough to follow. That is a fine line that some writers go over, making the writing impenetrable. I have faith that Nocenti is good enough to avoid that.

    Just read the second issue and it's definitively one of my favourite books in years. Wonderful writing and art in perfect interaction and great themes for a very intriguing story. I love it!

    Well this is not a feel good book. Pretty grim and dark.
    I really didlike the reporter and her editor. And the aliens are not "friendlies".
    I wonder why they chose the monotone pallette for the color.
    A simple pallette is fine, but just the gray makes it a Black and White book.

    Issue 1 was so bizarre but entertaining that I had to stay onboard for issue 2. I feel it's important to support the more 'out there' titles because the comics world needs more variety.
