Sean Kleefeld has a review of Far Arden up on his "Kleefeld on Comics" blog. In it, he struggles with the same problem I've had recently: trying to explain what the hell the book is about. My attempts at summarizing FA usually melt into a babbling mess, so as of this morning I'm just going to start saying it's "Jack London meets James Bond" and leave it at that.
Warning, Kleefeld's review has a few spoilers.
Thanks for the review, Sean!
Thanks for the link, Steve!
