Maybe, but seems a little 1990s Rob Liefeldesque to me. Telepathic connection to blades? Can anyone offer up even a half-@$$ed explanation on how that's supposed to work?
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.

Not just blades, but all things that go stabbity-stabbity. Remember the hair? The poorly drawn hair that is a focal point of the character, so why did they pick an artist (who I like in other books) who doesn't bother with detail on the hair?

He must be "Stab Man" or "Knifey Boy" that the Blue Raja was talking about. :hm:
