To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book was not only brilliant but it's going to end costing me a fortune. You see, for a long time, I've been a DC and Marvel guy. I'd long ago turned my back on my Brit comic roots. Until I watched the 2000 AD documentary Future Shock that is. It brought back so many memories of the wild, twisted comics I used to love it. US, mainstream comics had been feeling a little dull while the latest crop of 2000 AD comics looked like the particular cup of tea I was craving. But where to start? Instead of heading back the classics I followed some advice and went for this interesting offering. Absalom shares its heritage with the likes of Constantine, Hellboy, Mike Carey's Felix Castor and Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London series. Grim and ghosts. The stories are fast moving. The humour is dark and the characters are strong. There's a lot to enjoy here and clearly a lot more to come. It's just a shame that it's shown me I've got a lot of catching up to do. Thanks for nothing, Tharg! I was meant to be saving.
