I liked it a lot more this time around, especially the first half of the book (which, oddly, is actually the stuff I had read before).
...and I just lost a longish post I wrote about it. Damn. Anyway, short form, first third of the book is a strong start, it gets really good in the middle, and I start to lose interest in the story (although the art is at its peak) with "Human Diastrophism". In general I liked the stories when they didn't focus on Luba and her family, and wasn't that interested when the characters started moving to America. But I did like it enough to reserve POISON RIVER and LOVE AND ROCKETS X, which focus on Luba and the characters in America respectively, from my library.
