    The comic is beautiful. The art is wonderful. The story, so far, is strange but compelling. I just have problems with a plot that revolves around stupid people doing seriously stupid things. It's hard to say more here without being a spoiler. I recommend giving Leviathan a try. Tor.com also NEEDS a better comics interface. ComicMix is blessed with the best "comics reader" on the web.

      Russ after reading your comments on here you ALWAYS have problems with a plot !!. With comics sometimes all answers are not their and you just have to sit and enjoy the ride as a reader, its always been part of the fun for me even when I was paying for the books each month.

        Look to the comments I've made on White Viper #9 or Hammer of the Gods #4 or GrimJack #33. No problems. All slathered with praise. I'm critical, yes, SOMETIMES, not always. Am I overly critical? Probably. But I'm willing to see another point of view. Where is it? Who else is MAKING regular comments on the Comics here at ComicMix? Issue ONE of a book will have twenty comments and by issue FOUR, one comment, mine! Where is the OTHER point of view? I'd welcome it. I encourage it. Where is it?The way I look at this, because we are getting FREE comics, we have a greater responsibility to promote those comics (here and outside of ComicMix) and provide feedback on them, positive or negative. Honest feedback. We have a greater responsibility to not just be passive readers.What's the point of putting comics in an interactive medium if nobody interacts!Did you take a look at LEVIATHAN? Did you "sit and enjoy the ride as a reader"? Did you comment on it there? It's beautiful and surreal. There are FANTASTICAL elements that make no logical sense. I have NO PROBLEMS with those. They are strange and dream-like. There are things I LIKE about this book and I've mentioned those. It's when the REALISTIC elements also make no logical sense and the plot is dependent on that, that's when I have a problem. And I'm not afraid to voice it.

          Just tried to look at your comments for White Viper 2,3,4 where you seemed to mocked the plot at the time but I can't find them to reread them. I do leave comments on things but wait til the story is finshed and then feel that I can have my say. Maybe its me being british as "we just don't like to make a fuss".
