    Quantum Age sets up for a solid finale the next time around but as much as I really enjoy the whole ties to the past thing it ends up dominating it just a little too much here. That's not exactly a bad thing but with a limited amount of space to deal with the future group every moment with Colonel Weird slows down their story. That said, I really liked what we got out of Weird here and seeing the larger arc of the character since the beginning of Black Hammer makes for a really good experience here. Combine that with Torres doing some great stuff in showing us the distant past and distant future while also putting together some great reunion pages, it's a solid and really fun book that has me eager to see how they'll wrap it all up.
