So good! I have never read the comics and so had no knowledge of the story or any of the characters, but it turns out it stands alone quite well. Just one piece of advice… the first episode is so full of everything that you really have to pay attention so that the following episodes make sense. I ended up watching it twice. Anyhow, it’s not often a series sweeps me up like this. Great fun, excellent writing and a stellar cast.
My only disappointment was that Despair is portrayed as an overweight woman with stringy hair in a tattered cardigan. I mean, really? The only thing missing was a dozen cats. Other than that… loved it.
