    Just finished reading it today and I got to say, I was a bit dis

    Just finished reading it today and I got to say, I was a bit disappoint. First off, I absolutely loved the first volume and I really enjoy reading Ted N.'s works but what I wasn't expecting was him NOT doing the art as well. I will give the artist credit that his art is very similar or at least resembles Ted's work, but what I did not appreciate was near the end of the volume seeing these black blobs of people (personally, I would have felt shame to see those blobs and roughness in the art, especially when it looks unfinished and or rushed, you can really tell near the end of the volume. Hell, I could barely understand what I was looking at at the last page-I could figure out what they meant but it looked like it could have.....I have soo many complaints about the ending of the volume). At times it was difficult for me to tell who was who that was talking, or being able to tell the difference between character and even their dialog at times!

    It started okay in the beginning, but as I progressed I kept finding things that I didn't like about this volume. Either I need to reread again and hopefully understand what's all going on or SOMEONE wasn't paying attention with the dialog plot lines. I felt lost at times about what the characters were saying; like it jumped too fast from scene to different scene; almost like parts of the dialog was misplaced or lost and never entered the volume.

    I love the first volume and his other series Courtney Crumrin, but I'm not gonna lie when I say that I was disappointed in this volume. I was expecting Ted's work and style and got somebody's else work who went from Good to "What the HELL?!" type of work. Okay, now that most of the negatives about this book is out of my system, I will say that I did still enjoy it to a point. I could tell that it was written by Ted, by dialog and speech from the characters, and that some of the characters still resemble his initial design. I do wish that they would have talked or gone more into the "DragonFish" a bit more. It was briefly mentioned, again, near the end/climax (oops, guess I still had some in my system still). All in all, it's not a complete loss for a volume, we still get to go on another adventure with Polly and the crew, plus roommate. Just know that Ted is only the writer and Robbi Rodriguez is the artist.
