This is quite an intense issue. There is a small amount of action here. It is mainly around Malec, The Dark One, and is very one-sided. Nevertheless, it adds to the story well and is interspersed with an origin story of The Dark one - where he came from and how he came to be. Shang’s link in here was well played, but it is only some of the story.
We also get a new addition - hopefully, this is an ally, and I like how this plays out; this will be an interesting meeting, and perhaps we will see more?
Meanwhile, lost in the Abyss, we discover that there may be some way out, but there are many names and monsters to look out for. This looks like it will stretch out this story arc longer.
The ending is well played, with a big reveal of (I assume) the big boss to take on - this was a Thanos moment here!
A wordy issue but a very intense read, with some mysteries told, and some hinted at.
