[thumbs up] Volume One is overrated. The art is hard to follow and suffers from same-face syndrome more than Volume Two does, the writing was sometimes pretty questionable (hello, entire performance-enhancing-drug-abuse-by-a-black-minor-turning-him-into-an-overly-aggressive-and-less-intelligent-brute plotline), and it had the weirdest goddamn romance plotline/logic in comics.
Like, you can talk shit about NohKate deciding to date after a one-night stand because it was fun and convenient and he was the guy with a car, but Cassie knew a guy for five hours, kissed him once, never saw him again until he got her killed, and kept claiming he was her boyfriend for like… months?
I’m sorry but Nate/Cassie was just so painfully shove-a-het-ship-in-there. I can’t, guys. It was SO MUCH MORE EGREGIOUS than Noh-Varr/Kate.
