This has been a fantastic mini-series that fan of Steven Universe should not miss. The art continues to be excellent, perfectly capturing the show's style and charm. Also Lars is also attacked by the Glass Ghost and any story that has Lars getting hurt gets a ten out of ten from me. Because Lars is the worst and he deserves every horrible thing that happens to him. No really, Lars is the worst.
