I keep debating on picking this up at the local shop.  I liked the previews that I saw in the back of recent Vertigo comics, but ya never know with hardcovers that are wrapped in plastic and you can't take a quick browse of. 
 
With this review, I think I'm going to have to pick it up. 
 
Also, what's up with the crazy edits to the scary room?

I've pretty much stopped buying comics that aren't original self-contained stories. I'll check this one out.

This Pisses me off. I had a similar idea that I was gonna work on, about a person who can go between two worlds and he would be different in the other world than the world he's from, and feels like he can have more excitement in the other world and live his dreams. Ugh this pisses me off. I wish I was in the comic business so I could get my ideas down on a comic so I can call it my own and not called a copy cat. Aw this pisses me off. I need to take some action to get my ideas down and try tho get them published because it feels like sooner or later somebodyelse will think about it. ugh.

They say there're no original ideas anymore dude.
AS long as yours is different enough write it and see what you can do with it.
Maybe try other mediums too.
Prose books for instance. Getting anything published would make it easier to get more published

Dude that's not fair!
If I go to SF can I borrow it or would i still have to buy my own copy?

I haven't picked it up yet but Vertigo has been doing some great graphic novels lately and this definitely looks like it's another interesting book...I think the graphic novels rarely have the "typical" art though thinking back to last year's The Nobody and Luna Park and IMO that's part of the appeal
 
definitely an odd experience picking up something that was never released in single issue form though...personally I'd prefer trade be released first or alongside hardcover

Sounds like a great movie idea, maybe they should try this instead of all the crazy super hero movies.

I had no idea the story was as such, sounds a bit Joe the Barbarian-ish to, I've seen in in the shop. Definitely might check this out

Just read this the other night. It was damn good. Really compelling and it keeps you engaged and reading till the end. Would make a fun film, no doubt.
 
The only downside is how everything plays out in the end. It is not quite what I feel the best way to end things would have been.
 
I want to do a review on it, so look for that, hopefully soon, if you are interested. I can elaborate on some things.
