It helps that the art is by Michael Avon Oeming, who has a dynamic, original style that keeps the series grounded but also conveys the exotic creatures and events that drive the story.
The story by Jon Rivera and Gerard Way is loaded with odd turns, mysteries, violence, hidden civilizations, family moments - and horror.
It's not a book I'd recommend for young readers - it's really for adults only - and if you haven't read the earlier issues, it's probably best to wait for the collection - it would be tough to sort this story out by this point.
But for those who tackle it, the reward are great.
