This is easily one of the most moving graphic novels I have ever read. I've read it twice and got teary eyed both times. I have to strongly disagree with the reader that says this book is intended for teenage audiences. The protagonist might start out as someone unlikable, but he evolves as the story goes on, as many protagonists are wont to do. As for the "super powers", that is not what they are and not how I would describe it. It is literally a gift from death- it's everything the protagonist wanted, but at a price. The story revolves around serious adult themes that might be more relatable to young adults in their twenties rather than in their teens. It can get dark at times, but such is life, etc etc. The artwork is stunning, the characters really seem to come to life on the page (which is suiting in a graphic novel that's main theme is life, its meaning, and self discovery).
