    I read the first issue last night and really enjoy it. I’ve already #2 but haven’t read it yet. Can’t wait!

    Read #3 today, and it was the most heartbreaking by far.

    So conspiracy theories really come true if enough people believe in it? I hope they can squeeze in some mind-bending discussion on how perception alters reality or whatever. I think this book is more than capable to handle that.

    That ending though. I knew I should've seen it coming. But damn.

    #3--heartbreaking, yes, that's the word, alright. Maybe the hardest comic to read (emotionally) I can recall, certainly for many years, now. I will certainly be approaching next issue with a LOT of trepidation.

    Man this is a scary book. Scarier than I thought it would be.
    #3 was great.

    The art does a fantastic job of unsettling the reader.

    Read #1 when it came out and really dug it, but 2-4 piled up in my TBR pile with lots of other books. Finally got to them ad read 1-4 all in one sitting. Damn, this book is good. I cut my eyeteeth reading conspiracy flavored fiction with Eco's Foucalt's Pendulum and RAW & Shea's Illuminatus works back in the early 90s, so it's right in my wheelhouse, but still has something original to say and brings something different to the table in that genre of books. And Simmonds art is perfect for the tone and thematic underpinnings of the book.
