I picked up this series randomly at the library last week. At this point, I'll try out anything that Image puts out. And I'm so glad I did. The premise was fascinating and the comics just dive right into the fray. I loved that we start with Luci's story and move into introducing the other gods. I'm intrigued about how Laura fits into the story. Can't wait to the next volume.
