Azzarello does great with the shorter format but this longer work seems to be a success too. It has all his trademarks of the multiple narratives, diverse characters, detailed supporting cast, jumping timeline, and has a lot of heart besides. That and a very dramatic ending.
The art is great with lots of shady bars, seedy hotel rooms and dusky twilight to show off with. There are lots of flashbacks and recaps as well with ancient history looking different from recent memory.
A brilliant story and an even greater part of the ongoing saga.
