This issue wraps up the opening story arc, so it's a tough starting point (I advise waiting for the collection), but it's definitely putting in place a powerful story.
It's the opening salvo in the war between Toyo Harada, a powerful psiot who has built an industry around his vision for the future, and those trying to maintain their freedom.
He's opposed by a small but powerful group known as the Renegades - but can they survive Harada's plans?
It's a sprawling story, with flashbacks, deadly confrontations, plot twists and heroic rescues.
With powerful artwork and a strong story that nicely sets up lots of possible future scenarios, this is a terrific successor to the original series - but one that makes its own way.
