This looks really ...interesting. I'm a huge fan of Powers . I have to be honest, though; I'm not trying to doubt Oeming's skill at all, but his style isn't what I'd normally call "all-ages friendly." However, perhaps it's time that the rounded, smooth, "all-ages friendly" style is challenged.* I'll be very interested in how people respond to this book.
*=I am aware that some, like Matthew Loux, have already done some of that challenging, but for some reason it seems to me like Oeming's style pushes the boundary further.
