I'm finishing up my pre-orders and I usually like to give Vertigo #1s a chance. I'm not sure if this one is really up my alley. Is anybody else getting it or heard about it?

the art looked really intersting, so I preordered it. if it sucks i'll stop reading, but why not take a chance on something new?
