    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 21, 2021

    Theres one issue left to go in the series. The big revelation at the end of the issue twists the narrative in an interesting direction which calls into question some of the basic assumptions that Laila might have had about the nature of her situation. The cycle of life and death that the series has been following DID feel like it might have run the risk of becoming repetitious, but Ram V and Filipe Andrade turn things around at the end of the penultimate issue that should keep it fresh for the finale next month.
