Ok, so if you haven’t read the first volume of Fly, go do that now.  Don’t worry I’ll wait…actually I gotta keep this review going, but for those of you who did, congratulations you’ve just become, like twenty percent cooler.  Fly is just one of those rare series that I myself can just really get into...
