El finds himself back where he started. But he's changed too much to simply accept this. After discovering what a beautiful thing life can be, EL will not let himself slide back to the Hell his life once was. Mateo offers him a way out, but it comes with an extraordinary cost. And so, EL must at last decide just how much he's willing to pay for his escape.

    The ending of Hollow Heart leaves the reader with El, living in their own constructed space with their own constructed Matteo. Tucker's use of fire against black space makes the rest of the series feel like a reverberation from this imaginary point of origin. When the story briefly returns to the facility, we are reminded of how dull and plain the corporate space looks without El's point of view. The series thus ends on the stifling notion that corporate violence exists in pursuit of intimacy " that it is a force that consumes the space around us. Read Full Review

    Hollow Heart had a lot of interesting things to say along the way but as a whole I'm admittedly not sure what it is that it wants to get across. We get the tragic kind of ending here that works and I'm sure they could do more if they wanted to. Allor's script had a lot going for it in the individual issues with the narration and what it was trying to say there but at the end I'm not sure what the larger point was. Tucker's artwork has been solid throughout and the kind of surreal feeling that we get with El definitely worked in the book's favor. Read Full Review
