    OverallA fantastic issue to close out the story arc on. The backstory is handled fantastically by Gene Luen Yang who has done a great job of building this world over the last seven issues. The next arc is already set up and ready to go. And I for one can't wait to read it. Hopefully, we get a little more Chinese mysticism thrown into the pot as that is an aspect of this comic that I have truly enjoyed. Read Full Review

    Dike Ruan delivers some amazing visual flair to every page and panel. There is a great energy to the action and even the quieter visual moments have emotional weight and tension. Read Full Review

    The storytelling here continues to be solid overall, but this definitely feels like a transition chapter in the grand scheme of things. Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of the character and have been following the story so far then I recommend this one. Otherwise wait until the trade paperback comes out or go back and read all of the series in one go to get the story properly. Read Full Review
