Rasl #11

by Jeff Smith

Well, this is one comic that doesn't seem to be in a hurry to answer any of its mysteries, or clear things up for the reader in the least.

This issue opens with Rob and Uma hanging out in her apartment in post-coital comfort, until reality goes a little wonky, with Rob seeing multiple images, and the creepy girl (who may be God) floating in a corner in the bedroom.  After that, hundreds of birds start falling from the sky, and Rob has some electrical phenomena happen to him.

That's about all that happens this issue, and while it's a quick read (considering the length of time it takes for each new issue to come out), it's pretty exciting and well-paced.  I've really enjoyed seeing Smith depict a more adult world (I almost said realistic, and then remembered just what this series is all about).  I do wish a little more would happen or get resolved in each individual issue, but I'm definitely enjoying the ride here.
