The Seeds #1 Review This is not a comic everyone will enjoy. It is a dense and slow paced read that delves heavily into contemporary themes. Nocenti’s script is socially conscious, covering subjects such as the poor state of news media and people’s obsession with the small devices in their pockets. The use of the ...
