I agree you should check it out, but I'll give you my take on the series. "A lot going on in the strip" means too much going on in the strip. There are too many characters and plotlines for us to follow easily. "Roscetti's art is rough" means Roscetti's art is too rough. I don't find this scratchy, scribbled style at all attractive.
I'm also uneasy about the whole "manipulating Native American spirits" theme. I'm not sure where Burgas got this from; it's only vaguely implied in the strips themselves. But assuming it's true, is that a good idea? Will each team have a "shaman" who calls up spirits buried under the stadium to help the home team and harass the opponents? Because that could really be stereotypical.
I guess the story takes place in New York City. The Indians use a few Native words I don't recognize, but they appear to be out west somewhere. Will we learn what culture they're from? Will spirits from different tribes appear at different stadiums? Or will these Indians and their spirits just be generic?
