This was the first comic I have ever read. I am not familiar with the genre so I really don't know how to process this medium. I know that I read this super fast. It took me a couple pages to get into because the beginning had a lot of characters and I did not know if I had to remember them all. But once I got the gist of the storytelling I was hooked. I read this so fast I felt like I always had to see what was next. It was a very strange experience as this is a very strange book. It's funny because this book is about dreams and it really felt as wild as one of my own dreams. I was discussing this with my boyfriend as I read it and I kept saying that I did not know if I liked it because it was so weird. But I ultimately concluded that because I read it so voraciously I must have enjoyed it.  I will for sure be continuing in this series
