    All in all, I could not have more mixed feeling about Imperium #16. While Joshua and his team made one of the best single issues of the better part of a decade, I am heartbroken to see it go. I have not a single bit of criticism for this book. Joshua's script, as always, was thought provoking; Khari and Ulises' art was emotionally driven; and Dave's letters pulled the rest of it together. It has been a hell of a run for Imperium. I suggest that everyone go buy all 16 issues because I truly believe it should be up there with The Saga of Swamp Thing, Strangers in Paradise, and Sandman.

    The battle may be over, but Haradas story is not. Dysart has also seeded future stories within this ending. Do not miss this outstanding book. This story will have lasting ramifications on the Valiant Universe and in the hearts of readers. Read Full Review

    Imperium #16 brings ‘Stormbreak' to a close shaking things up again with how far Harada is willing to go for this future. This series really makes you wonder if all this is and will be worth it. It is one thing to see that future, it is another thing entirely to stomach the losses along the way. Read Full Review

    While the character work is still strong, the artwork and overall "conclusion" are not as up to the standard this series had set. Read Full Review
