    This movie is really good at creating a comic book vibe. It is the perfect balance (unlike Scott Pilgrim) of dark real world themes and fun comic book themes.

    I love the aspect of the three merging storylines. To me the story of Damon and Mindy Macready was the most fascinating and well thought out. The relationship they have is undoubtedly a unique one but it plays well as it develops up until Damon's death.
