First Impressions

I turned to the first page and thought, "So that's what the cover is!"

Other than that, I'm just 15 pages in, and I'm finding that reading a graphic novel is definitely an adjustment. It's hard to get used to! I'm sure it will get easier as I go. So far it's been difficult to get into a rhythm with the reading and looking at the illustrations. Also, I'm already fascinated with the character of Rorschache, and I'm anxious to delve into the story further.

The adventure continues!

It is a little different, for sure. I began reading it over the weekend while my family schlepped us up to bear lake to play. I'm glad you're enjoying it though;
I'm struck by the different characters and their varying perspectives on the past events.

Rorschache is a little on the... crazy side in my opinion. Which makes him all the more watchable.

Have you gotten to the "survivor/pirate" stuff yet? The parallel comparisons are confusing to me at first, but really interesting.

Oh, and what does Paul think?

Rorschache is definitely crazy. But he's the only one trying to figure out what's behind the Comedian's death.

The pirate stuff did baffle me a bit. I just read it, and I might have to go back and read it again. Some of the imagery was pretty intense, though!

Still fascinated...

Have you started reading yet, Lisa?
