The rise of Cthuhlu has been halted and our heroes now must rebuild all that has been destroyed. For the newly returned Sela Mathers that means coming to terms with everything that she has lost—especially a relationship with her daughter Skye. But for Skye there are more immediate concerns because all is not what it seems to be in Arcane Acre.

After the massive adventure that had crossed around multiple titles, you would think that Skye would be able to rest. She can’t even do that, though, as nightmares are clouding her sleep, and there may be more to it than that.
This issue takes what has gone before and then also adds a reset for the world - a death, a return and more. The death of Avril is still heavy on the inhabitants of Unseen Acre. The return of Skye’s mother, Sela, is an interesting one - there are some gaps in her memory, and she has decided to do her own thing for now. Even for Sela, though, things are looking bad, and we get an interesting introduction for her in the world of Myst.
It does look like Unseen Acre is returning to being a school, so it will be interesting to have the student/teacher dynamics we had a long time ago!
Before we meet them, though, Skye still has some investigating to do - and it looks like there are some old and new faces causing problems in the future. And I think it’s good to jump in here.
The art team had some of their work cut out for them here - darkness, light, familiar faces and monsters, and new ones. There is some good use of the darkness here and a little action too.
This was a good reset and possibly a good jumping-on issue for newer readers.
Stay tuned as the plot thickens, mysteries unravel and new adventures loom on the horizon. Skye's journey is far from over and we can't wait to see what's in store for her and Unseen Acre.
The creative team has done a phenomenal job in setting the stage for the upcoming saga, delivering a visual feast that blends darkness and light, familiar and unfamiliar elements in an incredibly intriguing way. If you're new to the series, this is the perfect time to dive into the mesmerizing world of Skye, her mother Sela and the Unseen Acre. And for the dedicated fans, buckle up for what promises to be an epic roller coaster ride. So, let's jump in and see what the future holds for Skye. If the past is any indication, we're in for a treat!"
