Well, it's been a while since we talked about comic books. Let's rectify that shall we?
Anywho, I'm going to try to summarize the plot now. I say "try" because the plot is a tangled mass of plotlines that leaves you more confused than when you began. A group of children in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic future go on a quest to kill a tortured comic book artist who was used millenia ago by demons to take over the world. It is in turns violent and creepy and incredibly sad. It may sound relatively straightforward, but the narration jumps between times and parallel universes, and rarely explains anything in a satisfactory way. In fact, the Scientist, a sort of archetypal "I-will-now-explain-everything-to-you" character, begins realizing midway through that all of his plans were faulty. In fact, there are just some things that he never can really explain even to himself.
