Remender provides some nice character work in some flashbacks to Voodoo's childhood. Having the cruel ghosts of his parents be the narrators makes everything more upsetting. Voodoo seems to have had a rough time as a kid.
The art is a bit muddier here too. I can respect the dreamlike quality in the story, but it seems to go a bit far. I'm hoping this book picks back up next issue, but so far, it is not living up to the promise of the first issue.
