CBR Review: Spaceman #4

I recently reviewed Spaceman #7 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "You have to read Spaceman slowly. There's no other way to read it because of the way Brian Azzarello writes it. Taking place in the future, the characters speak a form of English that's a combination of simplification, dumbing down and slang. It's not too difficult to figure out, but it also slows you down quite a bit. Thank god. Spaceman is a joy because you have to read it slowly, you have to take your time and make an effort to engage with it, connecting the twisted English with Eduardo Risso and Patricia Mulvihill's dark, moody art. It's a more fulfilling read than most comics because it demands you meet it halfway rather than sitting back and letting it wash over you."
