Sometimes it's hard to keep the secondary characters straight. They're really dragging out the what-the-hell-is-this-place factor, and I'm once again reminded unfavorably of Lost. But the dialogue and pacing and art continue to be excellent. Here's hoping the next volume has some answers that make sense, I'm all about internal logic.
(But I really wish they'd stop putting pictures of schoolgirls in miniskirts on the covers of the trades, they make me feel like a perv.)
