Maybe it's just me, but I don't see what all the hoopla is surrounding Madame Xanadu, Vol. 1: Disenchanted. I found it to be incredibly boring and disjointed as it bounces from story to the next and each story itself wasn't anything special. It wasn't that the writing itself was bad, it's just that the story wasn't all that compelling and the character motivations were non-existent. I read a lot of comic books from all styles and from many different publishers, but clearly those that focus on 'Magic' isn't anything I would choose to seek out. The art by Amy Reeder Hadley was pretty good for the most part. I did like seeing her art progress with each successive issue. This is a Skip. I will never bother with this book or the series for that matter, again.
