This was a really enjoyable issue with a lot of cool stuff. I really liked the black coven, Thane's friendship with Lobo-looking guy, and Thane's rescue. It was a good read. It's a bummer that Lemire is leaving Marvel, but this is not the kind of series that likely had a long life anyway. Hopefully Lemire has enough time to finish this story in a satisfying way.
