The art on the first part is okay, the "story" is just there to fill people in on what's what & who's who. The art on the preview of The Magdalena isn't as good and just sets up events in an upcoming issue.
I'm glad this comic has been created. But I think I won't enjoy how long the scope of this plot will take. It was interesting to learn a bit more about each of the artifacts, and maybe I'll check out a few of their earlier comics.
