It took a 2nd read to really get the characters all straightened out, but what an intro. Definitely recommend reading slowly and taking in Stephanie Hans art, the "game" world looks fantastic. The pacing is great, seamlessly covering 25 years. If this was considered an oversized issue i'd almost want to get this every two months as not sure with the art style I won't feel a little cheated by a more

Basically, what i understood was that Scott is actually traped by the antilife equation. Either that or hes actually dead. But ill take the first option.

For me it was a great finale.
As i look back and think about the whole story i feel sad that it is ending. the wait for each issue was painful more

"Yeah, I know. But we are too."

What did just happen here? It's not an easy read, but damn, this is everything the series has to offer. It's a masterpiece, and I thank King and Gerads for creating it. It is safe to say that this is already a modern classic.
