    This has been one of the funnest sci-fi comics in a long time and I can't wait to see how it all ends. Read Full Review

    Tynion and Dialynas have created a story where a lot has happened, especially since we started this final arc, and this issue is no exception. Balancing another series of character building flashbacks " filling in small details about Ben's character and the decisions he's made " with prepping for a war against a giant, green Isaac, as well as setting up the climax on Earth and deep beneath the mystery planet; this is no easy task and, for the most part, it is done well.

    I'm usually pretty focused on plot, so it says a lot that with only one more issue to go, the character work in this issue was the highlight for me, easily mitigating my usual concerns about getting a satisfying conclusion. (Maybe I just have extra faith in Tynion's storytelling after the brilliant Memetic and Cognetic.) The jumps through Ben's history may seem like unnecessary padding to some critics, but the character evolution they highlight is what gives this series an epic feel. I'm excited to see the conclusion next month, but I'll miss these characters.
