I wish I can give you the lowdown.  I wish I could give you a straight answer.

Thing is after issue 1, I'm not ready yet.

There's set up and hints of world building to come.  Characters are being introduced to us and each other.

I however CAN tell you the art is damn good and the coloring is fantastic.

I can also tell you something special is bubbling here.  Some serious world building is about to occur, just not so much in this first issue.  It stays inviting to a new reader instead of hitting one over the head with a ton of explanation, which I appreciate.  I want to be hooked on the characters before the world - something lots of science fiction and fantasy get wrong, IMHO.

I'm just not at a point I can give a firm thumbs up.

There is enough here to give issue 2 a shot, I can say that.

Finally got around to reading issue 1 yesterday.  I liked it.  Definitely enough to make me want to read issue 2.

I just finished issue 2.

I don't know whether to say:

"Dang it! After getting my pull down I'm adding another title."

Or

"Woo Hoo!  I'm adding Copperhead back to my pull list!"

I'm going with Woo Hoo!

Up to issue 4 with 5 coming out this week - the book has yet to disappoint me. 

It's a slow burn in major revelations, but the small revelations in-between keeps me glued.  Good book.

Okay, I was wondering the same thing. I bought the first trade, saw a few issues more, then solicits just seemed to have ...stopped.

EDIT

So there's this from the writer:

 Angry Angry Angry

Just went through the October Solicits for Image and still don't see this title's return. Starting to worry now.

Also, on a side note, I see a lot of Image titles have now raised their price to the $3.99 standard now, after saying with $3.50 for so long. This may have happened already, but seeing them all lined up like that, it hit me more. That is not to say that ALL Image titles are that price, but a good part of what I read at least.

Hopefully they will still drop to $1.99 on ComiXology.
