this is the most though provoking book as far as New York based book

As a huge fan of Brian Wood’s writing in the comic book medium, I didn’t hesitate to pick up the first issue of his The New York Five when it hits the newsstands back in January. Of course, I quickly discovered that a.) it is the follow-up to The New York Four, which b.) I completely missed, even though I was devouring anything written by him as I began following his ongoing titles Northlanders and DMZ. So in no short order, I checked out a copy of this, his first outing about NYU students Riley, Marissa, Lona, and Ren in order to catch up on the previous developments in their freshman year lives when they rent out a crowded apartment in Manhattan. Wood never ceases to amaze me in the way that he has mastered completely different genres with an ease most prose writers would envy.
