    Read it, liked it. My favorite part was

    Remember when everything was beautiful and nothing hurt?"


    Because yes, I do remember that. That sentence really struck me.

    If I had read it when I was 13 it would have blown my mind. But I am not 13 anymore and so I digested it a bit differently.

    I did think it came off a little pretentious at first, but as I read it I realized it a lot of what it had to say was pretty much what I had come to realize in my own way, and that made me grow very fond of the story. I do think it's a story a lot of people can relate to, and I think it's a good reminder for that realization we've all had in some form or another.

    The art was amazing and really pulled it all together. I will often buy comics based on the artwork alone, regardless of whether or not I think the story will be good. I bought Wild Children because both the story and artwork interested me, and it really delivered.

    @MercurialBlonde:

    Yeah, same here. People who don't seem to have any frame of reference for the stuff we bring up in 'Wild Children' beyond 'The Invisibles' respond like that, usually. "It's ripping off Morrison." No, it's not. It's using many ideas he used, and people before & after him used, and so on. It's following a tradition of sorts, and it's trying to build upon it. Glad you -- and most readers I've heard from so far -- get it!


    @Argos:

    Thank you! I'm very glad 'Wild Children' worked for you.
