I've noticed in other reviews that there are a good number of complaints about the characters. I also didn't like any of the characters. There are some characters to greatly dislike, like Eddie, but I don't care either way about El or Jo because I don't know anything about them. The characters just feel very generic. It isn't until the end of volume 1 that Dane interests me and I don't know if that is enough to keep me going with this series. The art is gorgeous and the story has potential, but right now it all seems very flat.
