Synopsis:

We are deeply pleased to introduce you to the series that Scott McCloud calls "the best comic you've never read," and with a phenomenally priced omnibus package! Now a Dark Horse Originals flagship title, Finder is an extraordinary creation nurtured by fourteen years of self-publishing, with legions of self-proclaimed "Speed freaks" attesting to the joy of discovering it. Speed McNeil's absorbing and critically acclaimed world of aboriginal sci-fi has "the sort of tossed-off concepts that gave the original Star Wars and Dune their depth" (Salon.com), and Village Voice calls it a "glorious, catholic pileup of high-tech SF, fannish fantasy, and street-level culture clash" that is a delight to sink into. If you've gone for too long without being dazzled by a creator-owned opus, allow us to suggest this solution for your reading woes. Because with Finder, the only disappointment is in running out of pages.

I'd vaguely heard of "Finder" prior to seeing this at my library, but I'd never had an opportunity to read any of McNeil's work. I'm so glad I found this!

McNeil has created a fascinating, complex world full of messed up people, joy, and magic. It's exceedingly hard to describe. I was grateful for the author's notes at the back of this volume, because they clarify some of the details that I otherwise would have had to feel out on my own. It turns out that nine times out of ten I was on the right track, but it was nice to have a little bit of confirmation.

I love the artwork, as well, and it's fun to see McNeil improving as the comics progress. I'm definitely looking forward to finding volume 2!
