I had a seeking suspicion that this was going to be a bittersweet issue.

And it was. I liked the way this was all building up to this confrontation. There were choices to be made, and I think that they were all the right ones.

Artistically, there were some tough pages, but the team really knocked this one out. From fighting with high-tech armour, in the sewers, under water and in the streets. This had some excellent layouts and scenes.

The story makes sense and allows us to perhaps revisit this world in the future – although I like not knowing what comes next.

The flashback scene had me kind of worried for a while, but then it clicks in and makes sense, this was a nice finish to the story.

In all this has been an epic story, with some highs and lows, the art has been consistently excellent, and this collection is on my buy list.
