I'm not impressed by the 2 year delay since the last issue, but at least we didn't start at another issue #1.

The artwork and the design of this comic is magnificent. Unfortunately Ruckra's obnoxious and extremist politics are trumpeted through the editorial. Personal politics should not be taken to work, but Rukra seems to think this is acceptable.

It isn't. Dropped.
