Omega: The Unknown - Jonathan Lethem Maybe it's just because I'm not familiar with the original series, but this seemed really... underdone. Also pretentious, but I'd be okay with that if it were either more intellectually rigorous, or more action-packed. Being neither, it just feels boring. The art is rather dull as well -- the lack of expressiveness weakens the effect of the robotic and otherwise emotionally stilted characters by decreasing their contrast with the "normal" ones.
