The art is great as always and most of the creatures/characters and creature/character designs are pretty great. There is also some nice action/violence. However, I am growing increasingly disappointed with respect to where this series is, or isn't, going. There is no overall series plot or story arc that keeps me interested in finding out what happens next or keeps me wanting more. Even this short, issue-contained story isn't compelling, especially as there is never any legitimate conflict or tension. Speaking of which, there are a couple instances in this issue where Gert seems to be afraid of dying, but by now, the reader is pretty certain that Gert can't die, and it seems like a waste of time to even hint that Gert is ever in some kind of danger. Rather than being story centric, the series continues to depend on "clever" ideas, gags, jokes and satire to entertain; however, I feel as though even these jokes are largely becoming trite and a bit lazy. I mean, we get it, Gert is an adorable-looking asshole and famously PG characters and themes suddenly have an edge or a dark side.
While this particular issue on it's own isn't bad, I am close to losing faith that this series will continue to motivate me to purchase more and more issues as it seems to have already presented the best it has to offer.
