I was impressed. The slight revisions you made to the event placement and pacing makes the story work better. At least, that's my opinion. Not to mention...the cover for issue #2 is friggin GREAT. The art and colors are fantastic. I would love to see it released as a poster, it'd look great on my office wall.
Score another point for Val & the crew, I can't wait for issue 3, and then the ongoing series.
