Dark, and strange story about imperfect people trying to do their best despite the odds. Grant McKay is not a good person, but, at the same time, he isn't a cartoon villain. He makes mistakes, so many mistakes, but he doesn't really blame anybody else for them either. The plot is fast paced, and interesting, and I liked that I felt dropped in the middle, and gradually had the situation explained to me. It saved a lot of information dumping, or awkward exposition. The twists were nicely done, and I'm still not sure what's coming next. The art style isn't my favorite, but I cared enough about the characters, and the story to keep going. Can't wait to read more.
PS - I did love this #1 Hastings Variant by Greg Tocchini.
