    The final confrontation between Baltimore and the Red King is a must read book. This is how a saga should end. Recommended. Read Full Review

    I liked some of the action in this, but fundamentally this issue was hampered by the overall idea of this final series. Why introduce a great gang of characters only to then have no development for any of them, nor any for Baltimore? The seeds were sown for lots of cool characters a few series back and then they sort of neglected them in the end, and baltimore didn't really need them for anything other than body-fodder. Shame, because the Baltimore series has been one of my favourite comics ever but i get the impression that the cast expansion was kinda pointless when it comes to the final showdown. Looking back on his adventures overall, its most fun to think of him exploring solo, going against the weird baddies in their creepy black towers of shadows, he certainly won't be remembered as a humane 'leader' with depth in that regard. I'm glad that I just found the Joe Golem series, that's a good remedy for my malaise! fare thee well baltimore !
