suck it, ladies.
Pretty good coming-of-age tale about a mixed race teen learning her parents are former high-level members of the Yakuza and "Porno Swede" crime empires, all set in a hyper-capitalistic America of the near-future. The world and it's trappings (the most difficult part of creating good future/sci-fi) are well realized with Kristian's artwork, and his highly stylized inking leads to pretty rollicking if somewhat muddy action sequences. The whole thing still comes off as poorly planned, however, as certain set-up panels don't pay off, only Pella, our heroine, has a third dimension, and just when things start chugging along the whole thing wraps up as if the creators suddenly had other deadlines to take care of. A novella when it should have been a continuing series. Still fun though.
