Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Owing debts to television shows like Lost and The Prisoner, as well as The X-Men, this tale is much more than the sum of its parts. The list of influences hints at what’s to come, but Spencer manages to put it together in unexpected ways. A group of teens are hand-picked for an elite private boarding school that turns out to be more of a nightmare, with a mysterious agenda, a sinister faculty, unexplained deaths, and other scattered weirdness. Each character is fleshed out through flashbacks—the Lost influence is strong here—that also examine motivations and mysteries. The one challenge to enjoyment is the constant stream of crass sexual barbs spewing out of Ike, the sociopathic rich brat. Disruptive to the flow and tone of the story, this onslaught of sexual harassment feels overdone and eventually becomes a burden. If its point is to provide female characters with an object of retaliation to prove their strengths, it’s unnecessary given events in the actual plot that are more than suited for the purpose. Eisma’s art functions mainly as a stand-in for television cameras and living actors. (Dec.)

I have heard so many great things about this graphic novel series. To me this one was really strange. It didnt make a whole lot of sense to me. It was quite confusing on parts. I understand these 6 kids are at a really smart school but they have the same birthdates which is a bit odd. But after that was so confusing. I dunno I am probably going to read the second volume, where I hopefully will understand it better. I really loved the graphics though. That was the best part for me. I love how illustrators to the graphics in graphic novels. They have really beautiful work. I dont really understand why people got addicted to this after this volume. I am really hoping the second volume explains alot more. Because I am so confused.

Huh, well I wasn't expecting that. So the structure for this is all over the place but at the same time you can kind of follow what's going on. You have a crazy school where the teachers take their jobs a little seriously. And 6 new kids find that something isn't right. Obviously. So, of course I heard nothing about this except that it was a suggestion by well GoodReads of course. Again. Anyway, I found a new series I'll be reading more from. No really, I'll try since I keep saying that and stop then continue later reading the series and all that. Stayed up late reading this, wanting to know how it'll lead up to the next volume. It did not disappoint but left me with more questions, about the school, what the plan is for the 6 and of course wanting to know more about the characters. The art I really like and is it just me or does Casey remind you of Erika Christen...anyone? Kind of reminds me of Heroes and as someone else said Lost-ish. Off to a great start this series.

Characters introduced and mysteries established. One of those rare books where the writer teases future mysteries and you have no doubt that he knows the solutions rather than making it up as he goes along. Can't wait for future volumes!
