“The real beauty of Tag, and this beauty came up in the first issue too, is the unlikable main character. He’s a moderate jerk, but the reader still feels sorry for him, which makes the investment in Tag greater. You’re not just sorry for this zombie-dude, you’ve also extended the concern to cover his general unpleasantness. It costs more to embrace him than it would a nice guy. That cost gives Tag more impact, makes it possible for a conversation to carry more dramatic weight than any other possible course of action.
“Tag‘s one of the more immediately compelling comics I can think of right now. I was looking forward to it, but once I started reading this issue, I couldn’t put it down. It’s a roller coaster of a conversation, a very interesting companion to Giffen’s Hero Squared, which also features conversation-heavy issues, but never ones with so much weight involved.”
