So, I just picked up Pax Romana by Jonathan Hickman. Weird.  And one of those that I'll have to read a lot before I fullly get it.

I'm a big fan of Nightly News and his other stuff; how he uses white space makes me happy.

Anybody else read him?

Haven't read Pax yet, but Nightly News is beyond amazing.

Transhuman ain't too shabby either.

Nightly News still confuses me; but I really like it.  Transhuman cracks me up; I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to, though Smiley

Have you read Red Mass for Mars?

Do you recommend Pax?  I haven't read it but I like Hickmans Fantastic 4 and Secret Warriors.

I will recommend, but if you don't have at least an interest in history, it's gonna bore you.  I'd say that a little knowldge of ancient history is helpful too.

And depending on how religious (Catholic) you are, you'll read it differently. 

I enjoyed it a lot, but it is a hard one to rec.
