    *Takes a breath...* Man, that was some breakneck pacing... This whole issue is like a shotgun blast of superheroes straight to the sternum, like mainlining comics history straight out of a rusty needle. I'll say it right now: I know who many of these characters used to be, and I have no idea what's going on in this issue. There's myriad references to stories untold (many of which have NEVER BEEN told) and even if you know the characters, there's just too much going on for the book to be cohesive. Carlos Paul does an okay job on the interior art, if you don't mind some indistinctness in facial features, and a general kind of sketchiness that seems like an odd choice for a book fronted by the crystal-clear imagery of Alex's covers.

    My complaints about the last issue are gone this time around. The issue delivers a number of important plot points that move the narrative on and continue to build the tension, while also finding time for some moments of levity. The art is strong too, being detailed and evocative of a bygone age, while still being modern. I am really enjoying this series.
