I really really enjoyed this - but I read it at 3am and was extremely tired at the time... I'll need to re-read before I post much in the manner of my impressions, haha!

Very glad to have a new, entertaining book set in 4002 at long last!

Very good issue, it’s clear that Abnet has familiarised himself with the Rai back story. Plenty of references to the story Kindt set out and interesting from page 1. Art very good too, clearer than we often got in the Rai series.

5/5 - second best book to LADOTH that Valiant are putting out. :thumb:

I really enjoyed the prelude in the FCBD book, but not one of the 3 stores I visited yesterday had Fallen World #1. It’s possible they had already sold out of it, but not a great sign overall and sucked for me in general. Also couldn’t find LADoTH #1 anywhere.

I like larger stories like this that focus on a number of different story threads with different characters without having to be a "team" or "event" book. Comics needs more of that.
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.
