I started this series first of the week and I'm up to issue 6. So far I love it!

I really liked this series, although the last few issues were just a little "off", but it seemed to be setting up some pretty cool stuff. Real shame they never made more issues.

I agree. I dug the "romance title" feel of the book. Sometimes I think the dialogue got a bit too cheesy between Carmen and Hwen, but the book was fun and it would have been interesting to see how the "ex-boyfriend" thread would have panned out...

Oh crazylegs you know how I don't like "gooey" stuff.... bleh. It was nice at first to see the love angle, but I'd like to see love in action rather than being hit over the head all the time with the pet names. Great acts of sacrifice for the betterment of the other-that would have been much stronger than the high school feel some of it had.

Still haven't finished that one, and I've got the books out meaning to finish, if that tells you anything!

Agree with Dave. It was OK, but I think it should have been confined to 4-6 issues. It got REALLY lame after that.

BTW, Jonesy, you and I started here around the same time. How the hell are you so far ahead of me? :clap:

He's ahead of you because we are his crazylegs. Your love for us is more like Aram's love for Andromeda... :P

You know, I do bear more than a passing resemblance to Aram. Fat, beer-loving, and all around awesome.
