I first read this as an addition to another comic I was reading at the time-- it was the pencils, enclosed as a free trial.... and then when that company produced a few issues, I eagerly grabbed them... and then it stopped in MID STORY LINE!
Then I saw it again years alter in a graphic novel paperback... bought those... but then could not find it and again never got to the end of the story.
THIS version has some updated text, although I'm not really thrilled with some changes to the art, I can understand why they were done-- having seen the original pencils, that sort of work would have killed any artist. And the story itself still stands as DARN good and really entertaining.
If you like dystopian storytelling, old style SF, or just darn good stories and are NOT going to freak at some alternate sexuality (no, this is not porn, but sadly in this age there are still those who cannot deal with gay characters or anything else not in their personal universe) PLEASE go pick this up... enjoy it... thank me later
