    Overall Im really enjoying this adventurous space opera. Its a lot of fun to read and an absolute pleasure to look at. Just when you think the pace is starting to slow down, it picks right back up again at an alarming rate. I appreciate the level of intensity that the story takes and that coupled with Millars ability to establish some complex characters and dynamic relationships makes for some interesting storytelling. Empress #4 has offered us some entertaining moments and another intense cliffhanger and Im looking forward to reading the next issue in this adventure and seeing where it takes us next!

    It was never meant to be incredibly deep, but there is a profundity to the simplicity of the premise. Read Full Review
