Our guest brought gifts. In one case, it was a graphic novel called Xombi, which I found mildly amusing. The protagonist got dosed with nanomachines that rebuild him, so he can't die; afterwards he's inundated with weird encounters of a mystical nature. My problem is the vague whininess of the character, but there are some pretty creative thoughts expressed here. Not bad, not something I would have picked up on my own.

Considering that the title character found out what he'd become by way of waking up to see that his fiancée had been partially - fatally - dismantled in the process of his first reconstruction by said nanites...he struck me as being entitled to a fair bit of "whininess".

(I have the original Milestone-published run of Xombi, from the days before DC signed their character rental agreement with Milestone.)

Well, yes, but...
