Douglas has crash-landed in a new reality. He's stranded there, his ability to send a transmission is gone and the worst thing possible has happened: In this reality, he's a hero and everything he's ever wanted exists...including his wife. But it all comes at the expense of his own reality. Every thank you, every gift and every dream come true is now torture since he can't save the dying world he once called home...or can he?

    I'm really enjoying this series and wish we had a longer form one that really had a chance to explore the stresses and pressures of it more. Douglas is really grappling with some difficult things here and it plays well in the space that we get so I'm certainly not holding anything against it. It's a creative way to work things and seeing him trying to cope with what he feels as a failure while having the real chance at ahppeinss and fulfillment right there in front of him is great. There are no easy answers here and someone will always be hurt by any choice made, so it's coming down to what he feels is the right thing and going forward with that. How it'll play out is what makes the upcoming finale exciting. Read Full Review

    This limited series has finally found its voice just in time for next issue's finale. While the series has been uneven at time, the story of an astronaut trying to save his version of Earth has now become a compelling read. Read Full Review

    While it's interesting at points to consider the ethics involved in saving individuals facets of a massive multiverse, there exact nature of the science (and the character at its center) lacks sufficient detail and depth to make this denouement seem significant. Read Full Review

    This series has only gotten better with each issue. It really has the main character about to make a choice that has me truly gripped.
