    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Mar 29, 2011

    This issue had so much more going on than the last two. Seriously, just look up there at how much more I wrote and when you read it realize how much detail I had to leave out. Fortunately for the story, everything is still running smoothly and the pacing fits itself well within the series. Also, since reading the last issue I have actually read the original Ender's Game novel and can see a lot more of where Ender is coming from and I like how Johnston has worked with him. This issue is another 4.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Mar 30, 2011

    The scene where Ender and Jane have their major difference of opinion simply doesn't work here. The scene, told in the novel from Jane's perspective, takes place almost entirely in her computer world in the space of microseconds, in which virtually everything changes. Here, we see the scene from Ender's perspective, where a simple on-off switch has completely inexplicable results. We lose all the impact here, we don't understand what's happened to Jane, and that information is absolutely vital for the rest of this book, not to mention the final two novels in the series. Hopefully, Johnston has a way to bring that stuff back before the miniseries reaches its conclusion, but for the moment, it feels terribly lacking. Read Full Review
