I Am Legion: The Dancing Faun #2

Written by Fabien Nury
Art by John Cassaday

This is a really dense book. I think I hadn't noticed how decompressed North American comics have really become until I read this title - they pack more content in one issue here than an American trade paperback.

The story is making a lot more sense now, as it has become a war story, an investigative procedural, and a horror comic all in one great package. Cassaday's art is brilliant as usual, but highly constrained by the heavy number of panels per page and the large word balloons. He's a strange artist for this type of story, but it works nonetheless.
