Wow! Now that I know these characters, re-reading the 18 issues that are out to date has been awesome. (I've re-covered about the first 10 as I type).
The story is epic, complicated, and compelling.
I had difficulty getting into it when it first started, but now I'm excitedly anticipating action figures and it has all become well-tied-together for me.
I strongly recommend re-reading.
This can be a spoilers-allowed discussion thread, but I won't start with the spoilers personally. Bring it on if you guys want them, though.
This will be pretty good.
