Casanova Cover
 
Summary: Casanova (our protagonist) is a thief/spy/grifter whose father is the head of an evil taskforce that maintans "peace and order" around the Earth. He turns on his family--and then there are spy games!
 
That was the worst synopsis ever, but it pretty much sums up my 'meh' feelings about this title. First of all, it has way too much info dump. Too many textual asides and pages where the speech bubbles take up more space than the artwork itself. Secondly, the art left me cold. It's technically interesting, but the limited color palette failed to grab my attention.




The story itself felt old-hat. Blah blah, evil enterprise blah, daddy issues blah, naked robot ladies blah, action scenes blah. It's like a Tarentino film on paper, but without characters who make you care about them at least a little, or if not that, sit around long enough to see if they survive the inevitable rainfall of bullets at the end.
