I enjoyed this issue. All too often, when there is a ‘big bad’, there doesn’t always seem to be enough time to develop the bad guys and their minions. In this case, with a planet-threatening event, this issue does a good job of showing us the evil point of view.
In this issue, taking advantage of the larger size, we bounce back and forth in time and move between characters. Some of which we have been introduced to, but we also have someone new to learn about.
It’s a dark story, with some good battle scenes, both in the past and the present. I like how this all pans out, with old gods, elder gods, and monsters. There is some clever storytelling and some good commentary.
As we work our way through the comic, the past and present collide, with some good aspects and continuing the action. The dual battles going on are well-linked and play out well.
The art and lettering work really well in telling the story, with some good use of narration boxes (something you don’t get much of nowadays).
This was a good issue, with some special moments and add to the overarching story being told.
