The climactic battle is finally here!
- Spoiler: show
This is the action-packed issue but if you thought that meant there wouldn't be much horror you would be severely mistaken. From that scene with Puck and the brain stem to that final page, Bennett sure does draw some gnarly stuff. (In the letters pages one writer saying they are a fan is 11 years old. Sure hope that kid's parents don't foolishly assume all comics are for kids and are aware of the content!) But it isn't just a gore book because Ewing's narration through McGee is also so well done. This title continues to deliver 20+ issues in. Nonetheless, as this final battle is happening, I wonder if this would best be one of those series with a finite timeline. Can this tone continue on indefinitely? I am not certain. Though I must say when in the letters page they tease an appearance by the Leader I got pretty excited. Would love to see what Ewing does with him in the context of this run.
