While I'm still not all that engaged in the political arc of the stories but this one at least felt more personal to Spider so I had something to connect with and I really enjoyed and am impressed by how much detail and depth they build into this world with just a few images or scenes. It's odd, as I loose interest in the story I find myself getting more and more invested in the characters and still want to experience them and their world.

This is the fourth graphic novel in this series and I would have to say the weakest so far. Spider's ranting is still great, my favorite line, "Why do I like winter so much... it's not JUST because I like to see old people suffering." But the over all plot didn't seem all that creative. It's really a continuation of book 3 but it didn't have the cool stuff book 3 did.So I'll probably read the next book (if I can find it cheap) but I'm a little worried.

Great stuff. It's sometimes hilarious, sometimes depressing. Even though a vast exageration, it bears a freaky resemblance to the world we currently live in.
