What a raw, up front, in your face read! There were no holds bars in this GN. So if you're afraid of some honesty, nudity, and cursing, then you're on the wrong boat captain because this has it all. Plus, it's a dystopian read and who doesn't love those?! It's messed up in all the right ways. There are so many underlying messages, behind all the awesome humor and hate, and boy where the graphics killer! Loved it!
