Summary:
A new STD is sweeping the world, but this is a disease people actually want to get and seek out, simply because it makes you drop-dead gorgeous. But two detectives soon find out that there are serious and unforeseen consequences...


Review:
This was quite an interesting comic book and one I felt had a fascinating and original idea behind it.

The story of the disease is what I liked most in this book. It's an interesting topic; how physical perfection makes people do insane things. I also found it interesting how the government in this book reacted to it when things started going wrong.

The art is very typical comic book style, with quite a bit of gore (which I appreciate, because someone blowing up from the inside isn't meant to be pretty). There's nothing mind blowing to it though, nor is the coloring particularly striking for most of the story.

My biggest complaint about this is the characters. I didn't feel properly introduced to them, you're just thrown into the story and they're kind of just there from the start. I felt I would have cared more for them if I had been given some pages to get to know them first, which I think is a shame I didn't.

Overall, this was a decent comic book, and I think I liked it enough to want to read the next one when it comes out. I would give it a go if you're into comic books.
