I should love it more. Standalone stories about oppressed young adults? Becky Cloonan? Right up my alley. I guess my problem is that the stories are so slight. They're too surface. They don't get at anything deeper. They don't really go beyond themselves. I read them and then I pretty much forget them.

I'm not dissing. Demo is very good comics. More comics need to be like Demo. I'll certainly keep reading. There are enough immediate delights for me to stay interested. And there is always the possibility that Brian Wood will blow me away with the next installment. Still. Something just isn't clicking. And the first episode of the new series.... beautiful and everything. But so slight.
