I think I'm missing something

Everyone who reads Penny Arcade seems to be in love with their Lookouts series. Everyone, that is, but me. I'm just not sure what the appeal is. Owl masks and boy scouts shown beneath a few lines of poetry? Maybe I'm just not cut out for the mini-series, but I much preferred Automata (the first issue is here, and the rest begin here). I mean, come on. It had robots, private investigators, an actual plot, and noir. Who doesn't love noir?

But I digress. I probably wouldn't have a problem with Lookouts if it didn't mean that I'm not likely going to see another issue of Automata again. Woe is me.
