another advance review

Laura Gjovaag advance-reviews LOCAL #1:

"Let's start out this review by saying: If you liked Demo, then you will like this book. It's got the same pacing and story style. It's very much its own story, but readers of Demo will slip comfortably into the pages... like curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book. It's the comfort food of comic books, and that's a good thing.

"If you haven't read Demo, then I think it's safe to say that this is a very good book to give a try. Brian Wood has a solid sense of storytelling, and his characters manage to come alive with just a few lines of dialogue... although I'm not yet keen on Kelly's style [as Becky Cloonan's on Demo], the background detail is excellent. The Portland train station is instantly recognizable...

"Like Demo, each issue of this series will stand alone, but unlike Demo, certain characters will reappear, so if you read the whole 12 issue run, you'll get more out of it. Again, the first issue is a good one for a tryout."

Thanks Laura!
