    @SJD - Glad you liked it. Hard to believe we are planning Vol 2 release already!

    Okay - about halfway through and just wanted to offer a hopefully constructive comment about the format.

    I did give up on reading FA online, as I prefer things in larger chunks these days, but the formating worked really well in a browser and as small chunks the format did serve it well. I enjoyed it though, so I picked up the collection.

    In book form, however, it felt hugely formalist and that the pacing was so tightly nailed down by the four panel grid structure that there were few dynamic moments, which harmed the reading experience. It was almost a relief to get to the page that was largely white with the fade out in the bottom right corner, as that was the first natural break and pause up until that point.

    I think that something which was designed to be read in chunks suffered a bit by being put into such a lengthy feeling and controlled format.

    As FA is a bit of an experiment anyway, I thought I'd offer those thoughts.
