    It's actually a surprisingly poignant ending but one that's as abrupt as the issue that lead up to it. It's also firmly rooted in setting up the possibility of future stories, potentially following a more "traditional" superhero story.

This series stinks of one that needed more issues to flesh it out. Why it was relegated to seven good entries and one awful one is not something I can figure out myself. Even the art, something that had been knocking it out of the park in previous issues, is humdrum and muted here. It is all blurry linework, pointless flashes and our good friend blank space. And this is a line of advice to all budding metaphysics writers. When you have a big old reset at the end of your work, it renders everything that came before it meaningless. Give it a miss folks.
