    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Dec 11, 2019

    After finding its footing, this issue is a well-placed chapter in the series. With the last three installments being action-packed, this rest feels just in time. The focus on giving each character their chance to shine hasn’t changed. And, Tini Howard has crafted a story where that trend can be creatively continued. With the help of multiple great guest artists, this already engaging issue stays that way by changing its style to fit each new flashback. Read Full Review

    The biggest negative is that we don't really go anywhere new here, but this team's natural chemistry is enough to make up for that, at least for one issue. Read Full Review

    I like the people a little more, but the plot kind of stopped for a second there.

    I was a little picky when this series first began, but no more.

    This is such a fun book, and I really enjoyed the little vignettes which demonstrated, even with the eventual reveal, just how well the Vridai had inveigled their way into the psyche of our heroes. In some ways it’s worse, if you cannot trust your own memories then what can you trust?

    Tini Howard promised this denouement in her mission statement at the back of issue one, not only has she pulled it off, but I suspect is still holding more back. Brilliantly cunning, with great jokes, all supported by wonderful art and inventive lettering. You need to be reading this series.

    The team gets a moment's respite, filling it up with three personal Vridai "ghost" stories. The well-conceived, well-illustrated yarns are exactly interesting enough to excuse the pause in the main plot, though the over-mysterious cliffhanger begins to strain my patience just a bit. Still, this series has gone so well so far that I have confidence in the next issue's ability to pay off the mysteries.

    Not much forward progression here, but I think the cast has really started to gel. The chemistry here is good. And these stories are fun, even if they're null and void by the end.

    Obviously filler but this team has a nice little dynamic that carries this issue. Barely any forward progression at all, but Howard is doing a spectacular job nonetheless
