I must confess dissatisfaction with the above summary. It tells you about Plutona #1 in only the broadest of terms. Yet that is the only way I can describe this book without giving away the game. The only way to truly appreciate this book is to go in blind as I did. To say more, even in comparing it to a classic work of literature it demands comparison to, would be to deny you of one of the best reading experiences I've had in some time.
I can say this much. What Jeff Lemire, Emi Lenox and Jordie Bellaire have created here is immediately and obviously special. And you'd be a damned fool not to pick this book up immediately.
