This volume collects the first four issues of an ongoing comics series, which for non-comics readers means that there are four “episodes” of this story within the book and that the book does not have any sort of conclusion to speak of. If you want to know more, you’ll have to wait until the next volume comes out (or buy the single issues at your local comic shop). But what you do get in this volume is fascinating. The time-travelling-letter premise is fascinating, especially the fact that not all of the letters want the same thing, and the pull between trying to change the future, trying to leave it the same, and trying not to worry about it at all affects each character differently. It’s a dark, twisty story and I can’t imagine things are going to go well for any of the characters over the course of this series. If you’re looking for a new comic series or just a new brooding story, check this one out!
