It is a great read. It has been said that the writer/artist doesn't do endings so great, which I find true, but it is still one of the best stories out there. So much awesome happens in those volumes. One of the best thing I have read.

It's really long but if you are committed to it you'll love it. I've heard great things about Monster that I gotta try too
