Undiscovered Country has been a guilty pleasure title of mine for some time. The artwork is good but not great. I don’t feel an emotional connection to a single character, yet the title stays on my pull list.
A casual observer may ask why. The series started off with a great premise and took a strange turn after a couple issues. The strangeness keeps my curiosity piqued. Every time I think we’re at the bottom of a barrel we get a new barrel.
I love the concept of the “Possibility” zone. After all the twists and turns we saw in “Unity” I’m eager to see what characters will join the fray in this story arc.
Out of all the titles I read, Undiscovered Country is the most polarizing among my friends. The ones that like it really do. The ones that don’t really don’t. As a geek on a budget I would recommend checking out an issue or two to see what side of the fence you’re on. This may not be the title for you. You could also find yourself wondering where this series has been your whole life.
