    Mae continues to be an engaging book with what it does here as there are so many layers of elements introduced that it can be a bit overwhelming. It's a book that I want to reread every previous issue every time a new one comes in just so that I can make sure I'm getting all the right flow and story connections that I should be. Sadly, I don't have that ability and that makes each issue its own challenge, but a welcome one. Mae isn't quite on the backburner here as the book takes on a more overall view of things with Abbie dominating a bit, but she has some great moments and opens up another intriguing area for the series that I can see turning into quite the mess.

    While there's lack of explanation of what exactly you're looking at your eyes will love it. The characters remain interesting, the designs fascinating, and the plot ever thickening. Even though this latest issue lacks some clarity to allow you to enjoy it fully, Mae is a warm stew that you'll never want to put down. Read Full Review

    I'm starting to lose faith in this series. First, the dialogue, and even the writing in general to a lesser extent, is starting to bother me more as it is pretty bad (i.e., often corny and/or simple). Second, this issue provides what seems like a very large amount of different segmented pieces of information, but, in my opinion, it's to many little bits of information on too many different things and the I felt a bit overwhelmed and feel like I came away more confused that I was prior. This issue still has some very cool art and character design, and it does introduce what appear to be a few interesting plot points.
